« EDF serves as a bridge between the world of business, visionary startups and the general public. Let’s continue to support progress together. »

Jean-Bernard Lévy, CEO of EDF

As the first worldwide electricity company, the EDF Group innovates in its different divisions to produce low carbon electricity and allow customers to consume better while consuming less. Every day, our teams are working to advance new products and to create practical applications in partnership with the academic and business world.

With the EDF Pulse Awards, the Group’s ambition is to highlight and reward the projects of young, talented entrepreneurs who innovate to help society progress.

This application site is intended for startups or European SMEs who develop projects in one of the following categories:

Smart home

Low carbon city

E- health


In June 2016, EDF will reward a prize in each category. The 3 winners will all receive a grant of €100k and will benefit from a communication campaign in France and Europe.

All candidate projects will be presented on the website pulse.edf.com.

Candidate projects will be advised by a selection committee made up of experts in innovation and communication, as well as specialists in each category.

A dozen nominees will be invited to present their project in front of a jury of personalities from the world of science, innovation and entrepreneurship. They will benefit from support by EDF regarding their communication and image.

The 6 finalists will benefit from a voting campaign which will allow them to increase their notoriety. This is important because more than 120,000 voters expressed their views in the 2015 edition of the awards.
