Helping Britain_achieve Net Zero

We’re busy building Britain’s own wind, nuclear and solar energy supply – to reduce our reliance on energy imports and help prevent future gas price rises.

EDF generates zero carbon electricity from wind + nuclear + solar. A zero carbon mix to power the nation, whatever the weather

Investing in renewables

As one of the UK's leading renewable energy companies we develop, build, operate and maintain wind, solar and battery storage projects throughout their lifetime.

Investing in nuclear power

Around 14% of the UK's electricity is generated by our nuclear power stations and we're building a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C, and planning a second at Sizewell C.

Net Zero energy challenge

Creating an energy mix that meets demand, is affordable AND clean is not easy. Take on the energy challenge in our Energy Mixer game and see if you can get us to Net Zero.

What is Net Zero?

The UK has made a commitment to reach Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but what is Net Zero?

Find out what Net Zero means and take our quiz to test your knowledge.

To help Britain achieve Net Zero, we need to do things differently and use less energy. We’re here to help – making it easier for people to find the tips, tools and tech they need to cut out the carbon

Helping meet Britain’s future electricity demand for the next 60 years

As we phase out fossil fuels, we’ll need more power from clean sources like nuclear, so right now, we’re building new power stations – good news for the jobs market and the race to Net Zero.

Together we can live, work and grow sustainably and responsibly

We can help our customers, our colleagues and our communities live and work more sustainably. Every day. Because together we can reduce the UK’s carbon emissions to nothing.
