Nuclear new build projects

Understanding the nuclear and renewable energy mix

With falling prices for renewables, how does this affect the place of nuclear in the energy mix?

Our nuclear new build projects

Hinkley Point C

Hinkley Point C, currently under construction in Somerset, is the first nuclear power station to be built in the UK for more than 20 years. It will have the capacity to generate safe, reliable, low-carbon electricity; enough to power around 6 million homes over an anticipated lifespan of 60 years.

Sizewell C

We aim to build a new power station with two UK-EPR reactors located on land next to the current Sizewell B station in Suffolk. Sizewell C will be a near identical copy of Hinkley Point C, which will make it cheaper to build and finance and cost competitive with other low-carbon technologies.
