During the early 2020s, many of the UK's power stations are expected to close. If they are not replaced, there might not be enough electricity supply to meet the demands of houses and businesses.
To provide a secure energy supply for the future, the UK needs a diverse and balanced fuel mix. Nuclear power stations are well placed to contribute to this mix, as they generate low-carbon electricity reliably. Nuclear power is the most affordable large-scale, low-carbon energy source currently available to the UK.
EDF Energy is committed to helping secure our energy supplies for the future by investing in an energy mix that balances the needs of low-carbon emissions, security of supply, and affordability. We own and operate eight of the UK's ten existing nuclear power stations and we plan to build two new ones Hinkley Point and Sizewell, each with two nuclear reactors.
