About ERDF

The EDF group in France is the leading provider of competitive low-carbon energy solutions.
It produces and sells electricity. ERDF manages the public electricity distribution network, covering 95% of mainland France. This network belongs to local authorities (French municipalities or groups of municipalities), who subcontract to ERDF as an operator through a public service delegation. ERDF thus has two major public service duties:

– Service continuity and quality

– Non-discriminatory access to the distribution network

ERDF is a wholly owned subsidiary of EDF group
