Site Visits with the Shareholders' Consultative Committee
1/3 - In September 2018, the members of the Consultative visited the Cusset hydroelectric power plant in Villeurbanne, a development commissioned in 1899!
This hydropower plant and its integration in the heart of a complete development, with the dams of Jons and Jonage, accompanies for more than a century the economic and industrial development of the east of the agglomeration of Lyon.
2/3 - In November 2017, the members of the Consultative Committee visited the EDF Lab Paris-Saclay Research Center!
Completed in March 2016, EDF Lab Paris-Saclay is one of the 10 EDF R & D sites. It concentrates in one place excellence skills and means of testing on strategic topics for the future of the EDF Group: the production of low-carbon electricity, the electrical systems of the future and new energy services.
3/3 - In September 2016, the members of the Consultative Committee visited the Romanche-Gavet site!
At the gates of Oisans, in a narrow valley, EDF is currently leading the largest hydroelectric project in France. More powerful, better integrated with the landscape and respectful of the environment, this new underground equipment will replace the 6 power stations and 5 current dams in the Romanche valley.
Allow a panel of shareholders to express the expectations of individual shareholders and thereby contribute to improving communication with the Group: this is EDF’s objective in creating the Shareholder Advisory Committee.

1. The Consultative Committee met on 15 September 2016 in the Rhône-Alpes region. After a visit to the Hydrelec museum, the Committee visited the Romanche-Gavet site, the largest hydroelectric facility currently under construction in France, managed by EDF.
More powerful, better integrated with the landscape and more respectful of the environment, this new underground system will replace the six power plants and five current dams in the Romanche valley. The new power plant and the new dam will enable a 30% increase in electricity generation, contributing to the Group's CAP 2030 strategy to develop renewable energies.
Also on the agenda of this delocalised meeting of the Advisory Committee:
updates about Group current events;
the launch of an online discussion and content sharing site, to allow Committee members to exchange information easily and at any time between each other and with EDF’s Shareholder Relations team. This system has been developed as a genuinely collaborative tool, allowing members to post and share whatever they consider relevant (links to articles, ideas, experiences, best practices, anecdotes, questions, suggestions, etc.).
