Vincent de Rivaz EDF Energy on shaping the future

On 19 March at Exeter University Vincent de Rivaz CEO of EDF Energy spoke on energy companies  being trusted to deliver our energy future.

He said “We need to demonstrate that energy companies can be trusted to deliver our energy future, that we are committed to a new and better way of doing business.
After-all our very categorisation as a ‘utility’ puts us centre stage in securing the economic recovery and transition to a low carbon economy.
For the word utility echoes the French word utile meaning that it is something that is not just a function, it is a socially useful function.
Our challenge as an energy company then is to make clear the service we provide to you, to the public, as a socially useful company.”
