Energy and Climate Change Select Committee - UK New Nuclear Status Update

The hearing will give EDF Energy an opportunity to answer the Committee’s questions on the investment plans for a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C in Somerset.  EDF Energy and CGN signed a Strategic Investment Agreement in October for the construction and operation of Hinkley Point C. This partnership was recently approved by the European Commission.

EDF has recently confirmed its intention to  invest in Hinkley Point C in the near future. Both the French and  British Governments have expressed their strong support for the project which will provide the UK with reliable low carbon electricity to meet 7% of its needs.

EDF Energy witnesses will be:
-  Vincent de Rivaz, CEO, EDF Energy
-  Humphrey Cadoux-Hudson, EDF Energy, Managing Director, New Nuclear Build

The hearing with EDF Energy will take place at 10.15-11.30. Further details can be found on the Parliament website here.
