We are one of the UK’s largest energy companies, employing around 15,000 people at locations throughout the UK. In 2011, we retained our position as the largest generator of electricity (in Terra Watt hours (TWh) produced) and the largest generator of low-carbon electricity in the UK. We also retained our position1 as the number one supplier of electricity to non-domestic customers (as measured in TWh sold) and remained the fifth largest supplier to domestic gas and electricity customers (measured in numbers of accounts)1.

Our executive management team now leads three main business units: 

  • Nuclear Generation (NG) operates eight nuclear power stations in the UK with a combined capacity of almost 9,000 megawatts – electricity that is vital to the UK economy.
  • Nuclear New Build (NNB) which is tasked with the delivery of the new generation of nuclear plant in line with EDF’s global programme of producing safe, affordable, reliable, low-carbon production of electricity in the UK.
  • Customers (C) is responsible for supplying energy to our business and residential customers in the UK.
