[Machine Translation] On the eve of EDF’s Annual General Meeting, Greenpeace France points to the poisoning that EDF’s CEO has been driving for several months and will present the shareholders of the company tomorrow. With a lot of communication on the energy transition, the company is far from developing renewable energies and directs almost all of its investments in nuclear power. A strategy that is losing, both for the company, and for France, which is lagging far behind the implementation of its energy transition. Faced with EDF shareholders, Jean-Bernard Lévy will no doubt say tomorrow that the company plays a central role in the energy transition, with its solar plan for 2035 presented in December 2017. ” In reality, when we cross the calendars and EDF budgets, we realize that the company will mainly give priority to investments in the nuclear fleet and postpone its investments in solar … In general, the company is already behind the targets that she fixed herself. And yet, in 2017, it devoted only 10% of its investments to renewables! ” Exclaims Alix Mazounie, energy campaigner for Greenpeace France.
