Electric mobility helps to fight greenhouse gases and fine particulate pollution as 95% of the electricity produced has zero CO2 emissions. EDF now releases 5 times fewer greenhouse gases than the average European electricity company. Furthermore, EDF has set itself a target to achieve 25% electricity production from renewable sources by 2020, higher than the commitments of the Kyoto protocol. The Group is dedicating a third of its industrial investments to this.
Sustainable cities are already taking shape; they include an alternative mobility component that is characterised by the variety of means of transport made available to inhabitants: from trams to buses, car sharing programmes, and river shuttles, tomorrow's transportation will be electric and intermodality will be the order of the day.
EDF has been involved in the development of electric vehicles for more than 55 years thanks to a highly dynamic partnership policy working towards innovation. The experiments already conducted have allowed the group to implement numerous service offers for individual customers, companies, and communities.
EDF has decided to get together with manufacturers to conduct experiments to prepare the solutions of tomorrow.
