As part of a negotiated procedure, the Autorité fines EDF 300 million euros, and several of its subsidiaries


Following a complaint from Engie and the carrying out of dawn raids, the Autorité de la concurrence issues today a decision by which it fines EDF for having, from 2004 to 2021, improperly exploited the means at its disposal as an electricity supplier offering regulated electricity tariffs (TRV). It is alleged that EDF used the data from its customer files eligible for the TRV, as well as the commercial infrastructures dedicated to the management of the TRV contracts, in order to develop the marketing of gas market offers and energy services, and to convert a large part of its customers at the pivotal moment of the end of TRV for part of the professional customers. The objective pursued was to maintain its market share in the electricity supply sector and to strengthen its position in the related gas supply and energy services markets.

EDF requested the benefit of the settlement procedure. As part of this negotiated procedure, the Autorité fined EDF 300 million euros.
