The history of EDF Energy
Founded in 2002 after the merger of several smaller energy companies, EDF Energy has risen to become one of the UK’s biggest energy suppliers. In 2009 the company took control of the UK nuclear generator, British Energy, after buying share capital from the UK government. This move made EDF Energy one of the country’s biggest generators of energy as well one of the biggest distributers. June 2008 saw EDF Energy set up EDF Energy Renewables with the sole aim to become a ‘major force in the UK renewable energies market’. In November 2009, the energy distribution networks formally known as EDF Energy Networks were sold to Hong Kong based Cheung Kong Group. They were later renamed UK Power Networks.
EDF Energy was a major sponsor of the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. As well as being the official Great Britain team sponsor for the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics and the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, EDF Energy was also the official energy provider too. In August 2008, EDF Energy formed a partnership with The British Red Cross in order to help vulnerable people get access to support during power failures. In 2011, EDF Energy took over sponsorship of the London Eye from British Airways. The 3 year deal saw the London Eye renamed the EDF Energy London Eye.
EDF Energy is now the leading producer of low carbon electricity in the UK. EDF Energy owns and operates two wind farms with construction of a third underway. The EDF Energy portfolio also includes 8 nuclear power stations with plans to build another 4 in the UK in the pipelines. They hope to have the first built within the next four years. Employing over 13,000 people, EDF Energy was named “Energy Provider of the Year” by Consumer Moneyfacts in both 2014 and 2015.
