The Committee

For almost 35 years, the EDF Group has been supporting research on the history of electricity. Created in 1982 at the initiative of President Marcel Boiteux, the Director of Studies and Research, Maurice Magnien and contemporary history professor at Paris-Sorbonne University, François Caron, the Association for the History of Electricity in France (AHEF) facilitated the meeting of the business and academic worlds.

In 2001, a new Committee for the History of Electricity took over the missions of the AHEF. In order to better embody the growth in the field of study that has occurred over the years, the name of the committee changed in 2013 to explicitly mention energy – now the Committee for the History of Electricity and Energy. The committee’s mission is to support those who conduct historical research, to develop and share new knowledge on electricity and energy history. The committee gathers at least 2 times a year to set the action plan.
