Loan programmes

Having the flexibility to diversify funding sources is one of EDF's keys to growth.

Medium-term and long-term loans

EMTN (Euro Medium Term Note) programme

EDF SA has regular access to the medium-term bond market through an EMTN programme that allows it to raise funds from the financial markets using bond issues through the intermediary of brokers.

EDF's EMTN programme is registered in Paris, Luxembourg and some countries in the EU. Its ceiling is €30bn.

EDF Energy and Edison also have their own EMTN programmes with respective ceilings of €5bn, £4bn and €2bn.
