EDF, an important partner for China’s low-carbon 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. EDF has diversified its business in thermal activities in the 90’s.
In 2009, EDF became the first foreign investor in the Chinese nuclear power projects through the participation in Taishan EPR project.
