Innovation is the driving force behind EDF’s activities.

EDF is committed to energy and electricity research in China and opened an R&D Centre in China (located in Beijing and Hangzhou) in 2011.

EDF's R&D Centre in China provides support for the Group's business and its activities focus on priority themes for EDF's development in China:

  • Nuclear
  • Renwable Energies, Storage & Advanced Cycles
  • Decentralised Energy Systems
  • Low-carbon Urban Energy Planning
  • Advanced Power Systems
  • Electric Mobility
  • Digital Innovation
  • Artificial Intelligence

Taking advantage of the dynamism of the Chinese ecosystem, the R&D China Centre works on the applications of digital technologies to the energy fields.

With China's vision of becoming carbon neutral by 2060, EDF looks forward to working closely with China's innovative community to promote collaborative innovation and contribute to China's low-carbon transition.
