Diversified and increasingly present renewable energies sources
In accordance with France's energy policy for the next ten years, EDF is evolving its energy mix in order to significantly increase the share of renewable energy, in addition to nuclear energy.
In France, hydroelectricity is the second largest source of electricity generation, behind nuclear power, and is the primary source of renewable electricity. Flexible and storable, it contributes actively to the balance of the electricity system and to network safety.
The EDF group, through its subsidiary EDF Renewables, is a key player in photovoltaics worldwide, with major projects in dynamic areas such as the Middle East, Asia, North America and South America. In France, the EDF group has been deploying its Solar Plan since 2017, a proactive program aimed at positioning it among the leaders in photovoltaics in France.
Onshore wind power
In France and around the world, the EDF group, through its EDF Renewables subsidiary, has established itself as a key player in onshore wind power production. Our daily challenges are to build the best project in a given area, choose the most advanced technologies and ensure the quality of the facilities.
Offshore wind power
Offshore wind power is seeing very strong growth all around the world. From Europe to Asia and North America, the EDF group is taking part in developing major projects and supporting the structuring of a European industrial sector that creates thousands of jobs.
Types of renewable energy at EDF also includes...
Biomass, geothermal and marine energies, recovered energy, etc.: alongside mature technologies such as hydro, wind and solar energy, other renewable energies are developing, covering the full range of possible solutions to meet the goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
