GDF SUEZ is a global energy player and an expert operator in the three key sectors of electricity, natural gas and energy services. The Group puts responsible growth at the heart of all its businesses in order to rise successfully to today’s major energy and environmental challenges: responding to the demand for energy, ensuring security of supply, combating climate change and making optimum use of resources.
The Group offers high-performance, innovative solutions to personal customers, urban authorities and companies, with a diverse portfolio of gas supply options, a flexible low-CO2emissions power generating base, and unique expertise in four key sectors: independent power generation, liquefied natural gas, renewable energy and energy efficiency.
With a power generation capacity of 113.7 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.
Natural Gas and LNG
Considerably less contaminating in combustion than its equivalent in coal or heavy fuel oil, natural gas is an ideal choice for more environment-friendly energy production. In addition, the natural gas liquefaction process is of particular advantage in terms of storage and transport. Active throughout the gas value chain with more than 16 million customers in Europe – including 9,6 million gas contracts in France – GDF SUEZ is Europe’s leading gas player.
