Acting upstream, downstream and in the wholesale electricity market to achieve the right balance
More than 400 people share responsibility for optimising EDF electricity generation in France. The work they do allows EDF to deliver on its supply commitments to customers, at the same time as covering physical, financial and market risks.
Optimising the EDF asset portfolio secures and maximises gross margin at every stage of electricity generation and marketing.
All of which is made possible by acting on the many levers available for asset flexibility upstream (management of water for hydropower, scheduling generating plant maintenance downtime, etc.), and downstream (load shedding, etc.), as well as the constant quest to identify the best buying and selling opportunities in wholesale markets via EDF Trading
