Enedis has partnered with the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games as the official supporter in electricity distribution, this is in line with the goal to make sure games are organised responsibly.
The organisers of the Olympic Games have in the past used generators that run on diesel to electrify the events, in particular for lighting and television broadcasting.
Enedis has set itself a challenge to contribute to the Paris 2024 objective of halving the event’s CO2 emissions thanks to a high quality, solid, constantly maintained and modernized electricity network.
“The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games are perfectly in line with the company’s objectives of taking concrete action for the planet and improving customer service. The Paris 2024 deadline challenges our processes and forces us to adapt quickly to be on target”, adds Marianne Laigneau, CEO of Enedis.
Enedis has mobilised Team France Electrique, a group of 39 000 employees who are committed to the ecological transition around stadiums and everywhere in France. The employees are committed to the success of this unique event.
Development, security and network reinforcement work and infrastructure will be part of the legacy left by Paris 2024 everywhere in the territories concerned, in the same way as the installation of permanent connection solutions for events within the venues.
The president of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games stated, “Sport is a solution machine for education, for health, for inclusion and for behaviour change. With Enedis, we are committed to a more sustainable society by rethinking the energy connection of all the Games sites.”
