In charge of the public electricity service in non-interconnected areas, in overseas territories, in Corsica and on the Ponant Islands, EDF is innovating and modernising to meet the challenge of the energy transition, taking into account the specific challenges of these territories.

  1. Produces electricity, in competition with other producers.

  2. Buys all electricity produced in the territory.

  3. Delivers the electricity produced or purchased and connects customers.

  4. Establishes and manages sales contracts at the regulated tariff (TRV).

  5. Manages the injections of producers into the grid and continuously ensures the balance between supply and demand for electricity.

The indispensable amplification of energy savings

The best energy is that which we don't consume. As non-interconnected areas are not connected to a continental power grid, energy management is a major challenge for the territories. With its partners, EDF is carrying out numerous actions to promote controlled and responsible electricity consumption as well as to help customers in situations of fuel poverty.

The dynamic integration of renewable energies

EDF supports the ambition to develop renewable energies in non-interconnected areas: connection of new installations, purchase of energy produced by third parties, adaptation of the electrical system, implementation of innovative storage solutions, while ensuring the permanent balance between supply and demand for electricity.

Electricity production in flux

Non-interconnected areas are aiming for 100% renewable energy between 2030 and 2050. The EDF Group is participating in this goal by decarbonising its production fleet as soon as the regional multi-annual energy programmes (PPE) require it.
