The daily stated that the cooperation agreement between the two companies could be signed soon.

Representatives of HEP have recently visited EDF, the company ENEDIS which manages the public electricity distribution network for 95 percent of continental France, and the EDF Lab, the laboratory where advanced meters have been developed.
