Hinkley Point C

Helping Britain Achieve Net Zero

Realising the socio-economic benefits

Hinkley Point C is making incredible progress on-site in terms of construction, but we are also working hard to make sure the project benefits people in the South West and beyond. 

The benefits range from increasing local employment, to the development of a sustainable regional supply chain and the advancement of new training facilities and qualifications.

At Hinkley Point C we're building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK providing low-carbon electricity for around six million homes.

Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, Hinkley Point C will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions. The electricity generated by its two reactors will offset 9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year over its 60-year lifespan.
