Investments in power generation in Asia, and China in particular, are one of EDF Group’s most important industrial stakes.
EDF’s activities in Asia are part of a deliberate growth strategy. Under this strategy, the Group is involved in long-term projects, which reflect a spirit of co-operation and partnership, and a commitment to EDF’s corporate and environmental values.
The Group is investing in EPR nuclear reactors in China and in other projects in the rest of the region that will give it access to state-of-the-art technology, as well as promote its industrial expertise – particularly for power generation projects. EDF has set up partnerships with the major Chinese companies and is developing its activities in renewable energies, grids and energy services for urban and industrial uses.
EDF’s organisation in Asia
In China, the EDF Group’s activities are under the responsibility of the EDF Delegation to China based in Beijing and led by Hervé Machenaud.
For the rest of Asia, the Group’s activities are under the responsibility of the International Division Asia, based in Bangkok, Thailand, with a liaison office in New Delhi, India and a delegation in Tokyo, Japan. The Division is headed by Jean–Christophe Philbé.
