What is EDF’s Innovation Hub?

Our mission is to prepare tomorrow’s ener getic world by providing resources (best of technologies and people) to innovative and creative teams. As a global leader in low-carbon energy, the EDF Group covers every sector of expertise, from generation to trading and transmission grids. EDF builds on the expertise of its people, its R&D and engineering skills, its experience as a leading industry operator and the attentive support of its customers to deliver competitive solutions that successfully reconcile economic growth with climate protection. Cities and homes are transforming, customers and territories play a part in their consumption and their energetic policy. EDF and its subsidiaries assist them with innovative solutions. With 2000 people dedicated to research, the R&D division just opened in March 2016 its new research lab on the plateau of Saclay, rated top 8 of the world innovation clusters by MIT.
