EDF Energy in the North West

In the North West EDF Energy operates Heysham 1 and Heysham 2 power stations which employ over 1,100 staff and 400 contracting partners. As well as generating enough power to serve some four million homes in this region the company also provides gas and electricity to over 190,000 customers with over half of those opting for one of the company’s Blue+ products which are backed by low-carbon generation. We make sure we buy enough electricity generated from a low-carbon nuclear source to match every unit of electricity we estimate our Blue customers use. EDF Energy is proud to power up some of the largest companies in the UK, including sites for Tesco Stores Limited, Urenco UK Ltd, Morrisons, Jaguar Land Rover Limited and PPG Industries UK Ltd, right here in the North West. Following a landmark agreement with Network Rail the company also provides nuclear-backed Blue energy to power up the UKs electric rail network, covering most of the south east of England and the main lines from London to Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as the Merseyrail network around Liverpool and the Glasgow suburban network.
