Business Overview

The United States are one of the key countries in the global energy industry. After becoming the first world gas producer in 2010, the country surpassed the traditional top oil producers to reach the first rank this year. Driven by economic growth, electricity demand is expected to grow by 29% by 2040.

Awareness that ample energy resources are not all to guarantee electricity supply reliability, and a progress oriented culture, have kept the country at the forefront of research and development in the field of new technologies and smart electricity management.

Ensuring a long-term balance between energy needs and environmental priorities will require investments in three sectors: demand side management, infrastructures, thermal fleet replacement and energy efficiency.

EDF has long-held expertise in clean energy technology and experience in production of nuclear power, hydro, wind power and solar energy. Today, EDF is committed to working in partnership with leading players in the U.S. to produce and distribute clean and reliable energy.
Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant is based in Lusby, Maryland.
