Support for nuclear & Sizewell C

Opinion polls show support for nuclear power in the UK is growing. There is also strong local support for Sizewell C. 

According to YouGov, support for nuclear is up 21 points since summer 2021.  

In East Suffolk, polling by ICM shows that 61% of local people want Sizewell C to go ahead - that's well over double the proportion (24%) who are opposed.

Most local people (66%) believe it will bring jobs and training to the area while a majority (59%) agree the benefits will outweigh any temporary disruption during construction. 

 A large local majority say nuclear is needed as part of the energy mix (70%) and that it could help Britain become more self-sufficient (70%).  

Why do so many organisations across Suffolk support Sizewell C?

The thoughts and suggestions of all our stakeholders are incredibly important to us.

Their views inform our thinking, shape our plans and push us to make Sizewell C the very best it can be. 

In this video, local organisations who attended our East Suffolk Conference explain why it's so important that Sizewell C is built.

Businesses back Sizewell C

Over 70% of the £14bn construction value of the project will be spent in the UK. 

That's why hundreds of businesses from across the UK have joined the Sizewell C Consortium to support the project.
