blueBecause nuclear generated electricity is a source of low-carbon emissions, we think it's an important part of a broad fuel mix to slow the effects of climate change, while continuing to meet our energy demands.

That's why EDF Energy have committed to investing in the future of nuclear power with our nuclear new build programme.

It's also why we make good on our supply promise for homes on our Blue tariffs: we'll match every unit you use with electricity generated from low-carbon nuclear sources.(1)

How we produce our electricity:

We generate more than half of our electricity from nuclear power. The below table shows a comparison between the EDF Energy fuel mix against the UK average for the period between April 2015 to March 2016 - we think our carbon intensity versus the UK average speaks for itself.

Here's where you'll find our 8 nuclear power stations:

We guarantee our Blue customers' use is covered by low-carbon generation - and PricewaterhouseCoopers make sure we do this.

How does it work?

Energy sources

Electricity is generated from a variety of sources, inclduing low-carbon nuclear power

National Grid

Electricity is then transmitted through the National Grid and through your local distribution network

Your home

Then we supply the electricity to your home
