Our energy mix

To supply clean and affordable electricity to everybody, everywhere and at all times, EDF uses all energy sources: nuclear, water, wind, sun, biomass, etc. This is known as the energy mix.

EDF Group Energy mix

As 90 % of its electricity production does not emit any CO2, the EDF Group can rightly claim that it is the champion of low-carbon growth.

In 2019 , EDF Group’s specific carbon emissions delivered the figure of 55 g/kWh*. The Group’s carbon intensity is now eight times lower than the sector’s average worldwide, and five times lower than the European average**.
