6 06 INTERVIEW WITH THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO HENRI PROGLIO Interview with Henri Proglio (Pascal SITTLER / REA)

7 INTERVIEW WITH THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO HENRI PROGLIO07 As we prepare to go to press at the beginning of April 2011, all eyes are on Fukushima. What are your thoughts on this dramatic event? I, along with everyone at EDF, have been deeply affected by the earthquake and tsunami that have claimed so many lives in Japan and created a critical situation at the Fukushima power plant. The accident has shown just what a crucial role operators play. It is also a reminder that safety is the absolute priority for nuclear power plants. Safety is the very core of our industrial culture, a culture we approach with discipline and humility, remembering that nothing should ever be taken for granted. What consequences will the event have on your activities? We will use the lessons learned from Fukushima to make even more progress with safety at our plants, as we did after the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl accidents. Already, we are taking an active part in conducting security audits in Europe, and especially in France. One way we consistently work to improve safety at our plants is by gathering feedback and closely analyzing the dysfunctions that cause incidents or accidents. This type of steady progress is possible because we operate and design our own plants. Significant investments are made in reactor safety, and this safety in turn depends on how reactors are designed and operated and on the improvements made over time, all the way to decommissioning was your first full year as Chairman and CEO of EDF. How would you describe the year? I would say that 2010 was a year during which we tackled a large number of challenges head-on, in a complex environment. As the global population increases and becomes more urban, human and economic development is affected by the fact that energy resources are limited, which pushes prices upward as soon as demand increases. At the same time, there is an absolute need to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Security of supply, energy conservation, economic efficiency and the delivery of safe solutions are the fundamental challenges for our industry. With each passing day, we are making progress toward meeting them. What was the biggest challenge you addressed in 2010? One we could not postpone: operating performance needed to be put back on track. This was definitely the main highlight of the year, particularly in France, where electricity generation increased by 22.5 TWh because of solid output from all of our nuclear, hydro and fossil-fired plants. The same positive trend carried over to January 2011, when EDF s nuclear electricity output climbed to a record 43.9 TWh. We delivered on our objective to improve the availability of our nuclear fleet in France, lifting it to 78.5%. This was an important turnaround after three consecutive years of decline. Safety standards were maintained over this period through significant investments and the organization of five ten-year inspections. I would also like to acknowledge the efficiency of our teams in the United Kingdom in their handling of an unscheduled shutdown at the Sizewell PWR 1 plant and efforts to improve performances 1.

(Above and right: EDF Philippe ERANIAN) of the AGR 1 plants, one of which achieved a load factor of 90% for the first time since Progress was also made at the networks businesses, with ERDF reducing outage time by 5% to boost its performance. Is this uptrend in operating performance sustainable? It was achieved through significant capital expenditure and investments in sales and marketing. Our operating investments totaled 12.2 billion. In France, they increased by 10%, with 7.9 billion invested in generation facilities and the transmission and distribution networks. Was this solid operating performance reflected in the income statement? Yes, especially because we were able to meet our target of keeping operating expenses under control in France, limiting the rise to 1.5%, which was below inflation. Sales increased by 4.6% to reach billion, and EBITDA has seen organic growth of 5.2% to billion. Net income from ordinary operations ended the year 11.3% higher at 3.96 billion. And in net income? Our net income included significant non-recurring items. Over the year, gas prices plummeted, particularly in the United States. This had repercussions throughout global energy markets, and on electricity prices outside France. We also wanted to take the uncertainties associated with some of our markets into account. As such, we decided to record 2.9 billion of exceptional provisions for risks and impairments, especially in the United States, Italy and France, where we needed to factor in the extension of the TaRTAM mechanism. These non-recurring items resulted in a 73.9% decline in net income, Group share, which came to 1.02 billion for the year. On the other hand, they had no impact on Group cash flow. A number of transactions changed the EDF Group s scope of consolidation in Can you tell us about this reconfiguration? Improving the Group s risk profile and reducing its debt was another major challenge. We were able to find a better balance in our relationship with Constellation in the United States by securing the elimination of a put option that constituted a major risk. We also sold EDF Energy s distribution networks business in the United Kingdom under terms that were favorable both financially and for the people working there, and reached an agreement to transfer our interest in EnBW to the Land of Baden-Württemberg. Lastly, we allocated 50% of the RTE shares to the dedicated asset portfolio set aside to cover costs associated with the back-end of the fuel cycle. As a result of these transactions, and taking into account the disposal of our interest in EnBW after the close of the fiscal year, we succeeded in reducing EDF s debt by close to 20 billion in one year. The Group s increased financial flexibility

9 INTERVIEW WITH THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO HENRI PROGLIO09 Three research priorities Consolidate and develop the carbon-free energy mix Promote flexible, low-carbon energy demand Adapt the electricity system We are stepping up our commitment to innovation. resources plan is the Training Challenge (DEFI Formation) program, on which an agreement was reached with all unions. The first campuses are being developed in France and Great Britain, the Group University will now be open to all managers, and skills academies are being set up for each of the key business lines. What will the next steps be? gives it more leeway than it had before. These are only the financial aspects. EDF s reconfiguration has also entailed significant social and organizational changes. How has the Group s organization changed? The organizational structure has been strengthened. Our key businesses generation, downstream activities (customers, optimization and trading) and networks have been placed at the fore and given a global dimension. We aim to take full advantage of synergies and ensure that each business delivers solutions that address the full range of needs in France and internationally. We are also bringing together our fields of expertise through a geographical organization, with each region overseen by an Executive Committee member. In each of these areas, support is provided by cross-regional resources: HR, legal, financial, communication, and research and development. In sum, the new organizational structure is more in line with operating priorities, designed to extract maximum value from our expertise, and better geared toward today s energy issues, which are now global in scope. And what changes have been made to human resources? Having completed this reconfiguration and recovered a good level of financial flexibility in 2010, the task now is to take full advantage of our new room for maneuver by capitalizing on growth opportunities that arise. Will this new financial flexibility benefit R&D? Absolutely. After reducing our debt and improving our risk profile, we will now be able to optimize our financial resources and devote more resources to research, especially into renewable energies. We are also stepping up our commitment to innovation. The Group must enhance its ability to anticipate in 1. AGR: Advanced Gas Reactor.

10 10 INTERVIEW WITH THE CHAIRMAN AND CEO HENRI PROGLIO all businesses. This is obviously true of generation, where we will be focusing on carbon-free solutions, but more will also have to be done for the customers and networks businesses, which are poised to undergo major transformations. The development of smart grids will revolutionize the electricity market, and the Linky meter tested by ERDF will play a key role. Smart grids will make it easier to integrate distributed generation and allow end-users to be active participants in the electricity system. Our decision to move our main R&D center to the Saclay plateau, where we will be working alongside the very best French technology firms, is proof that we are setting the highest standards for ourselves. What are the next challenges you will be tackling in France? We plan to ensure that the recovery in operating performance at our nuclear power plants continues and aim to keep the availability rate at 78.5% in spite of a higher number of scheduled shutdowns, notably due to the nine ten-year inspections planned for In addition to drawing lessons from Fukushima, we will continue to invest in improving safety 78.5% The availability rate of nuclear power plants in France, despite an increase in scheduled shutdowns. and replacing large components at the nuclear plants, modernizing the fossil-fired and hydro fleets and strengthening the networks. Construction of the EPR plant in Flamanville will also continue. It is scheduled to start delivering power to the grid in Meanwhile, the government s recent announcement that 25% of the electricity output we will be required to sell to competitors will be priced at 40 per MWh from July 1, 2011, and then at 42 from January 1, 2012, is a pivotal development for EDF What are your priorities internationally? EDF s development will require selective investments. The Group will also need to leverage the strengths of its different businesses: electricity generation nuclear, fossil-fired, hydro and other renewable energies and sales and distribution. There are many ways for EDF to capitalize on these strengths, including the provision of engineering and consulting services for the design, construction and operation of facilities for third parties, with or without capital commitments. A good example is the Nam Theun hydropower project in Laos. With its 40% interest, EDF has designed, built and will operate the dam for 25 years. This successful undertaking provides us with a top-quality benchmark on the international market at a time when hydropower projects are gathering momentum across the globe. We also plan to bolster our positions in Europe. A revision of the shareholders agreement in Italy is being negotiated, and all options remain open. In the United Kingdom, we are forging ahead with nuclear power development plans by engaging in constructive talks with British safety authorities and ongoing dialogue with residents around the sites in question.

The Nam Theun dam in Laos (center) was brought on stream in (Left and center: EDF Philippe ERANIAN, right: Wostok Press Jonathan REBBOAH) What are EDF s priorities with regard to its customers? All of our customer s households, businesses and local authorities in France and other European countries, particularly the UK, expect us to help them manage their energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint. We will be working to ensure that we are more in tune with their expectations and in a better position to deliver solutions tailored to their specific needs. Other priorities will be to deepen our ties with local communities and to invest in customer management systems that allow our sales advisors to help customers play an active role in optimizing their energy use. Our customers know that with EDF, they can count on technical expertise and robust solutions incorporating the best technologies, such as heat pumps for homes and induction furnaces for industry, to provide both high-quality service and energy consumption management. We help customers play an active role in optimizing their energy use. What makes you confident about the future? I know that EDF has great strengths in its human, industrial and technological resources. Having improved workplace relations, developed additional room for maneuver and built an organizational structure built around core businesses, all backed by investments in skills and innovation, we are in a better position now to leverage these strengths. Regardless of what happens in the energy sector, EDF will remain a force to be reckoned with. What should shareholders expect? Will the dividend be reduced in 2010? No. We have agreed with the Board of Directors that I will propose a dividend of 1.15 per share, the same amount as last year, at the next Shareholders Meeting. This is in line with our net income from ordinary operations. We will also be proposing a system wherein dividends will be increased by 10% for registered shareholders who have owned their shares for more than two years.

12 12 KEY FIGURES 2010 FINANCIAL INDICATORS Financial performance 2010 The 2010 financial year was marked by three major transactions, which have had an impact on the Group s consolidation scope: disposal of the UK networks, the EnBW disposal agreement and a change in consolidation methods. As with changes in accounting methods and reporting, this affects the comparability of the 2009 and 2010 financial years. The sale of EnBW and its reclassification under discontinued operations notably led to changes in the comparable figures as reported in Sales growth of 4.6% in billion 59.1* % 5.5 Other activities 3.5 Other international 4.8 Italy 11.2 United Kingdom 34.1 France 65.2* Other activities 6.9 Other international 5.6 Italy 10.7 United Kingdom 36.2 France *The figures of 59.1 billion and 65.2 billion correspond to the sum of the precise values, corrected to one decimal place.

In France, EBITDA was up 7.7% over the year, thanks to an increase in nuclear power generation and favorable weather conditions. International EBITDA ended the year 0.4% lower, notably dropping in the UK, where the shutdown of the Sizewell nuclear power plant for six months had an impact, and at EDF Trading, which was affected by a sharp deterioration in market conditions starting in May 2010.

The decline was attributable in large part to the disposal of the distribution network in the UK ( 6.7 billion) and a change in the consolidation method applied to RTE ( 6.3 billion). After adjustments for the sale of the stake in EnBW, net debt ended the year at 27.3 billion. *After disposal of EnBW

19 BUSINESSES AND EXPERTISE19 (EDF Lionel CHARRIER, Getty/Photodisc, Getty/Flickr, EDF Philippe Marini)

20 20 BUSINESSES AND EXPERTISE GLOBAL ENERGY CHALLENGES Global energy challenges Breakdown of electrical energy sources worldwide in 2009 in % 7 Hydro plants 20 Nuclear plants 4 Other renewable sources (wind, solar, biomass) 1 Oil-fired plants 45 Coal-fired plants The world is emerging from the crisis that had slowed growth and depressed energy demand, although some regions are recovering faster than others. The challenge, however, is the same as before: How can we encourage development while tackling climate change, given the fact that resources are increasingly scarce, and therefore increasingly expensive? Our response must be adapted to a fast-changing world that is ever more urbanized and in which new dynamics are taking shape. 23 Gas-fired plants Source: SOeS, based on Eurostat figures Breakdown of urban population in 2050, by region in % 53.8 Asia Africa Latin America and the Caribbean Europe North America Oceania Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs 2010 (2009 Revision). Responding to divergent trends in a multipolar world The crisis has taken a toll on business levels in Europe and the United States, and caused energy consumption and prices to decline. Elsewhere in the world, growth remains on track, and energy demand continues to rise. New countries are emerging as major energy players, including Brazil, India and China. In 2010, China alone added about 100 GW of capacity, the equivalent of EDF s generation fleet in France. In sum, a multipolar world is taking shape, challenging the economic dominance which OECD countries have known for years. Addressing the issue of resources The downward pressure the crisis put on energy prices was exacerbated by nonconventional gas production in the United States, where gas prices were reduced by two-thirds. Increasing the use of gas in electricity generation promises to be a good transitional solution to preserve the climate balance if it is used to replace coal, demand for which is still climbing. However, this option could also increase the dependence of many European states on other countries, not to mention the environmental hazards posed by nonconventional gas production. Be that as it may, there is no choice but to reduce reliance on fossil fuels over the long term, since they pose the biggest threat to the climate, and the cheapest reserves are becoming scarcer. Tapping into the potential of urban growth One of the most significant changes taking place is global urbanization. More than half of all people now live in cities. The bulk of demographic growth (the world population is expected to grow by 2.5 billion between now and ) will be absorbed by cities, which are the ideal place to use network energies like electricity. Innovative solutions will be developed to make cities sustainable, including electric vehicles, lowwattage devices, and smart grids integrating decentralized renewable energy. These adjustments will have to go hand in hand with new and innovative approaches to both society and sales and marketing strategies, to ensure that the poorest people also have access to modern energies.
