China is identified by EDF Group as one of the key areas for international development.
EDF has been working in China for 40 years, starting with its participation as technical head of construction in Daya Bay – China’s first nuclear power plant project.
Over the years, EDF activities in China have diversified to thermal and renewables. EDF is now one of the largest foreign investors in electricity generation in China thanks largely to its holdings in nuclear, renewables and thermal power plants.
EDF is one of the few foreign investors in nuclear production in China through its participation in the construction and operation of two 1,750 MW EPR reactors in Taishan.
EDF has participated in the construction and operation of two offshore wind farms in Jiangsu Province, which is the first sino-foreign offshore wind project in China.
EDF holds shares in coal-fired power plants in Shandong, Henan and Jiangxi provinces.
EDF activities in China are centered on partnerships that open doors to new investment opportunities and activities geared towards nuclear, energy efficiency, renewable energies and R&D.
In China, EDF is now active in all main business segments, all of these helping the Group to support China’s energy ambitions whilst reducing CO2 emissions: nuclear, renewables and energy services.
