Wind earthly

Welcome > Our solutions > Onshore wind

Our ambition throughout the world: to develop, build and operate wind farms with the territories.

Why wind farms?

By using the force of winds of 10 to 90 km/h, wind energy produces carbon-free electricity from 80 to 90% of the time. Sustainable asset for the energetic transition, the rapid development of wind energy over the last ten years has enabled it to establish itself as a mature, reliable and competitive energy source. Between 2010 and 2021, the cost of producing wind energy has been divided by 3.

Always designed with local stakeholders and integrating the environmental issues of the territories, a wind project is also a driver of economic development for the local authorities : economic benefits during construction sites, creation of long-term jobs for maintenance, etc.

Did you know that a wind farm of 10 wind turbines (20 MW) produces the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 27,000 inhabitants.

Our ambition in onshore wind power

EDF Renewables is a key player in wind energy in France and internationally. A 100 % subsidiary of the EDF Group, we benefit fromrecognized expertise in the development, construction and operation of complex energy projects. Our ambition throughout the world: to develop competitive, responsible and value-creating wind farm projects, in collaboration with territorial actors.


Our know-how


Build responsible projects linked to the territory.

Operation & Maintenance

Propose competitive and value-creating projects.


Support local stakeholders in carrying out tailor-made renewable energy projects.

Our key wind farm achievements


Repowering: a new development lever for onshore wind power

25 years is the average operating life of a wind farm. The renewal of wind turbines, also called repowering, constitutes an important lever for optimize renewable electricity production at the windiest sites And sustain local economic benefits for communities.

Thus, on our Petit-Canal wind farm in Guadeloupe, repowering operations have made it possible to increase the total power of the park, while halving the number of installed wind turbines.

Recycling an onshore wind turbine: a key element for a responsible sector

At the end of its operating life, the wind turbine is dismantled and sent to specific recycling channels. More than 90% of the total mass of the wind turbine is recyclable or reusable. The concrete foundation can be removed and crushed for use as a road underlay. Certain components of the masts or nacelles can be reused or recycled in specific sectors. Concerning the blades, made of composite materials, they are the subject of much research and the first recyclable blades are appearing on the market.


EDF Renewables - Japan



Since 2022, EDF Renewables has been developing offshore wind projects in Japan. 

The objective: to contribute to the country's energy transition.
