Electrify the Future!
EDF's goal is to maintain its position as the global, efficient, responsible electricity company that champions low-carbon growth. The world of energy is changing, and energy is becoming more decentralized, low-carbon and data-driven. Customers are increasingly engaged in their consumption, energy efficiency, and self-generation. Meters are becoming smarter. The bulk of EDF’s new power comes from the wind, the sun and the sea, and we are seeking ways to utilize nature’s resources as best possible to generate electricity and conduct business in a sustainable and responsible manner.
EDF Innovation Lab’s mission is twofold: first, to explore, analyze and research trends and disruptive technologies for EDF Group in North America, leveraging the innovation of Silicon Valley and building on local partnerships; and second, to develop and test new markets, innovative businesses and services, to support EDF Group’s growth in decentralized, data-driven and low-carbon energy sectors.
To this end, we work in partnership with academic, industrial, financial and start-up stakeholders across North and South America.
