Wherever our Group operates, we want to invent a new energy model to address the climate crisis: lower-carbon, more efficient, less of an impact on the environment and on people.
In the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States), EDF has a representative office in Moscow. In addition to working with many of the leading companies in Russia and the CIS in nuclear power, thermal engineering and hydropower, the Group provides energy efficiency services to industrial companies through its subsidiary Dalkia Rus.
Our raison d'être is to build a net zero energy future with electricity and innovative solutions and services, to help save the planet and drive wellbeing and economic development.
The EDF group helped develop the future Moscow neighborhood of Rublyovo Arkhangelskoye and supported the smart district’s energy and urban planning. This project, a first for the EDF Group in Russia, capitalized on the experience built up by EDF in France and around the world in the field of smart and sustainable cities. The Rublyovo Arkhangelskoye neighborhood covers more than 460 hectares to the West of Moscow. It will house 65,000 residents in an area combining accommodation and tertiary activities. EDF provided innovative planning services via a platform for creating 3D simulations of energy and urban scenarios. This platform was developed by the EDF group’s research and development department at the Eifer1 research center based in Karlsruhe in Germany.
EDF believes that innovative solutions can help build a CO2 - neutral future that reconciles the environment with the development and well-bring of everyone in society.
In Russia and CIS countries, EDF seeks to partner and build the best solutions with innovative companies and organizations as well as startups and R&D centers from the energy sector and beyond the energy sector.
In 2016, EDF signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Skolkovo Foundation, aiming to cooperate in key areas, such as energy efficiency, smart cities and smart grids, energy storage.
