EDF activities in Asia are evolving to meet the demands of this fast-changing and dynamic market.
EDF activities in China
EDF has been working in China for more than 30 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 include hydropower and thermal power plants. EDF is now one of the largest foreign investors in electricity generation in China thanks largely to its holdings in nuclear and thermal power plants.

The company is one of the few foreign investor in nuclear production in China through its participation in the construction and operation of two 1,750 MW EPR reactors in Taishan.
EDF holds shares in coal-fired power plants in Shandong, Henan and Jiangxi provinces.
EDF activities in China are centred on partnerships that open doors to new investment opportunities and activities geared towards nuclear, energy efficiency, renewable energies, R&D and electricity transmission and distribution.
EDF activities in South-East Asia
EDF’s strategy in South East Asia is centred on its desire to respond to the growing demand for the generation, marketing and distribution of safe, affordable, low-carbon electricity.
EDF is active in Vietnam and Laos as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) developer, investor, and operator of power plants. As part of this strategy, EDF is involved in projects that reflect the company’s strong track record in developing long-term partnerships, and in initiatives that reflect EDF’s corporate and environmental values.

Working to strengthen partnerships with Japan and South Korea
Since 2005, both EDF activities in Japan and South Korea have been focusing on coordinating exchanges and projects with the company’s Japanese and Korean partners in line with its overall low-carbon strategy.
The Representative Office has facilitated bilateral cooperation between EDF and its Japanese and Korean counterparts on various aspects relating to energy production and development, as well as carrying out economic and technological monitoring.
