EDF is formally challenging accusations made by the Que Choisir consumers’ association regarding the Group’s actions on the wholesale electricity market. The allegations made by Que Choisir are not supported by any tangible facts but simply stem from a misguided economic argument that fails to consider the reality of the wholesale market, an interconnected European market based on the link between supply and demand.
In order to meet the electricity demand for its customers, EDF optimises at all times the use of its generation fleet in close interaction with European electricity markets. EDF acts under the permanent supervision of the energy regulator, the Energy Regulatory Commission, which issues an annual report on the performance of wholesale electricity, CO2 and natural gas markets.
Consequently, and considering the serious nature of these allegations, EDF reserves the right to take any legal action it deems appropriate in order to hold the association accountable for such claims.
