On the Dordogne, 28 hydroelectric installations and 58 EDF dams are operated by over 300 agents. These agents ensure the operations are conducted in an environmentally friendly manner and in service of the public interest. In 2023, EDF Hydro Dordogne produced 2.6 TWh of carbon-free energy, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 1 million inhabitants. Hydropower is the leading renewable energy source and has the advantage of being dispatchable, meaning production can start in less than 5 minutes to meet network demand, particularly during consumption peaks.

EDF Hydro Dordogne is also at the forefront of industrial tourism, with EDF hydroelectric sites open to the public. In 2023, these sites welcomed over 17,000 visitors.
