With a power generation capacity of 115,3 GW, GDF SUEZ is currently the largest independent electricity producer in the world. Its power generation facility is one of the most diverse in the world.
Renewable energies, a key issue
Since an increase in electricity production must not jeopardise the environmental equilibrium, GDF SUEZ is focusing on developing new infrastructures and favours the solutions that are most efficient and produce the lowest CO2 emissions. To date, 22% of the Group’s power capacity comes from renewable resources. Hydropower is of course the main energy source to be exploited, but wind power, solar power, biomass and biogas occupy a growing position in the energy mix.
Significant nuclear and traditional thermal power capabilities
GDF SUEZ’s electricity production assets are some of the most diversified in the world. To meet ever increasing energy needs, GDF SUEZ is constantly increasing its electricity generation capacity by pursuing an active policy of industrial investments in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Asia.
