EDF, an important partner for China’s low-carbon and high-quality development

Since the mid-80’s, EDF participated in the first large-scale nuclear power project in China as technical head. EDF made active contribution to the Chinese nuclear industry by participating in the construction of Daya Bay nuclear power station. 

In 2009, EDF became the first foreign investor in the Chinese nuclear power projects through the participation in Taishan EPR project. 

In 2019, EDF became the first foreign investor in the Chinese offshore wind market through Dongtai offshore wind project.

With innovation as core of all business, EDF has diversified its business in China into low-carbon energy services (including district heating and cooling, public lighting), renewable energy and engineering consultant services.
