EDF is particularly appreciative of the principles underpinning La Cité du Vin, particularly its three main development priorities: showcasing civilisations and transmitting a universal heritage, emphasis on the value of the sensorial aspect of consumption, and expressing the culture of innovation.
As an innovative venue overlooking the Garonne and combining history and modernity, La Cité du Vin offers a veritable voyage of initiation through time and space to discover wine civilisations. It will shed light on today's world and tomorrow's issues. These are all assets for development and food for thought that EDF could not ignore.
As an energy group, EDF could not miss out on such energy! The energy of all the players involved in this formidable project, but also the energy, in the strict sense of the word, supplied by EDF. La Cité du Vin will have several low-carbon energy sources: geothermal electricity and a biomass heat network that EDF Optimal Solution contributed largely to implementing.
Now that everyone is talking about positive energy and positive-energy regions for green growth, La Cité du Vin is the fruit of the positive energy of a terroir.
It is worth noting that EDF is the leading electricity supplier of vine-growers…. All the more reason to play a role in this great adventure!
