EDF holds assets in thermal power plants in Asia to meet ongoing demand for electricity in China and across Asia.
Thermal energy in Asia remains a major electricity source, with coal-fired power plants in China alone generating almost 75% of electricity.
Coal-fired power plants in China are expected to continue to account for the majority of the country’s electricity till 2030.
EDF holds thermal assets in China and Vietnam to help meet the ongoing demand for reliable electricity supply in Asia.
EDF is committed to the responsible production of thermal energy in Asia
To limit environmental impact, EDF China’s engineers are involved in high–performance thermal power stations in Asia, leading to less pollution than previous generation fossil fired power plants.
EDF is working in cooperation with local electricity generators on joint projects to develop more environmentally friendly thermal power plants in Asia. EDF holds 56.25% of Mekong Energy Company Ltd. (MECO), which owns and operates the 715 MW Combined Cycle gas fired power plant Phu My 2.2, commissioned in 2005.
EDF and China Datang Corporation joined forces in 2014 to build and operate a coal-fired power plant (2X1000 MW) in Fuzhou in China’s Jiangxi province. The plant is based on ultra–supercritical technology that ensures high efficiency while also reducing environmental impact. The joint venture is split between EDF (49%) and Datang (51%).
EDF also has a 19.6% share of Shandong Zhonghua Power Company SZPC, the owner of three fossil fired power plants with a total capacity of 3060 MW. EDF’s involvement with SZPC represents the largest joint venture project ever developed in the Chinese power sector.
