A global leader in low-carbon energies, the Group has developed a diversified generation mix based on nuclear power, hydropower, new renewable energies and thermal energy. The Group is involved in supplying energy and services to approximately 39.8 million customers(1), 29.7million of which are in France. It generated consolidated sales of €69 billion in 2018. EDF is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange
In October 2018, EDF launched our Electric mobility Plan
Become the leading energy provider for electric vehicles in France, the UK, Italy and Belgium with the aim of reaching 30% market share
Become to leading operator of electric charging points in these countries and the leading provider of smart charging services in Europe
In 2022, EDF will supply electricity to 600,000 electric vehicles, which represents a 30% share of the market in France, the UK, Italy and Belgium. The Group will also install 75,000 charging points and give customers access to 250,000 interoperable charging points in Europe. EDF currently provides support to regional authorities in rolling out electric mobility solutions across a large scale. In 2018, the cities of Lyon and Nice Côte d’Azur chose EDF to extend their network of electric vehicle charging points.
(1)The customers were counted at the end of 2018 per delivery site; a customer can have two delivery points: one for electricity and another for gas.

The concept of a circular economy is gaining in importance as a key tool in the automotive industry’s quest for carbon neutrality.
Now more than ever, automakers and suppliers need to reduce the environmental impact of material sourcing, shorten supply chains, reduce waste, cut energy consumption, and minimise their environmental impact through careful lifecycle analysis. When vehicles are not properly managed, throughout the supply chain as well as at end-of-life, the global environmental impact is high and the socio-economic impact event higher – the European economy alone loses out on millions of tonnes of useful materials and resulting potential prosperity.
With a tightening of the European Union’s end-of life vehicles (ELV) directive on the horizon as well as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) calling for urgent global action by all partnerships - consumers as well as business - there is a clear burden as well as enormous benefit on our industry to tackle climate change while keeping a healthy economy. Necessity breeds opportunity and innovation - as well as the environmental benefits there is a growing business case for adoption of a circular economy.
To explore the challenges and opportunities this presents automakers, suppliers, and other stakeholders in the world’s mobility engineering ecosystems, FISITA hosted a forum in partnership with EDF dedicated to the circular economy, featuring experts from EDF, Ford, Renault, and Toyota.
This output paper summarises the key findings from that event, which we invite you to consider and use as the foundation of fruitful discussions with your industry peers.
