Research, development and technological innovation are vital tools in successfully tackling the new world challenges and seizing energy opportunities. The reality of our sector combined with the current economic and climate changes push us on to work even harder in the protection of the environment, technological progress, energy efficiency and the development of renewable energy sources.

The Research, Development and Innovation Department (RD&I) is exploring traditional issues relating to electricity and the thermoelectric uses of natural gas, as well as focusing on hydrocarbons and bringing together the entire EDF Group’s research activities.

Over the years, we have built up links with key organisations in both the public and private spheres who are active in energy research both in Italy and around the world.
