Zero carbon electricity generation

We are Britain’s biggest zero carbon electricity generator, operating, developing and constructing a fleet of nuclear, wind and solar.

We aim to accelerate the shift to safe, reliable and efficient low-carbon energy generation and storage

Our goals

In support of the British Energy Security Strategy, our goal is to develop over of zero carbon electricity by 2035.

We will reduce the carbon intensity at the point of generation to 0g CO2e/MWh during 2023.

Performance highlights

We are Britain’s biggest generator of zero carbon electricity. We produced around 17% of the nation’s electricity in 2021

1GW of gross renewables capacity in operation and almost 5GW in planning

In line with our goals, we reduced the carbon intensity at the point of generation by nearly 30% in 2021 (36g CO2e/kWh in 2021, 51g CO2e/kWh in 2020)

Our plan for a green recovery

With the right policies in place, we plan to enable investment in low carbon technologies in the UK worth over £50bn by 2035. This amounts to 15GW of wind, solar and nuclear power – meeting one fifth of UK demand.
