Électricité de France S.A. (literally Electricity of France), commonly known as EDF, is a French multinational electric utility company, largely owned by the French state. Headquartered in Paris, EDF operates a diverse portfolio of 120+ gigawatts of generation capacity in Europe, South America, North America, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

EDF was founded on 8 April 1946, as a result of the nationalization of around 1,700 smaller energy producers, transporters and distributors by the Minister of Industrial Production Marcel Paul.

Its 58 active nuclear reactors (in France) are spread out over 19 sites (nuclear power plants). They comprise 34 reactors of 900 MWe, 20 reactors of 1300 MWe, and 4 reactors of 1450 MWe, all PWRs

EDF specializes in electricity, from engineering to distribution. The company's operations include the following: electricity generation and distribution; power plant design, construction and dismantling; energy trading; and transport. It is active in such power generation technologies as nuclear power, hydropower, marine energies, wind power, solar energy, biomass, geothermal energy and fossil-fired energy.

As of 2017, EDF still held the business of 85.5% of France's residential customers, though on a slow downward trend.
