New study confirms the low carbon credentials for Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C power stations
New analysis has confirmed that emissions from the electricity generated by Britain’s newest nuclear power stations will be even lower than wind and solar power. All three technologies will be essential in helping Britain achieve net zero carbon emissions.
The UK’s nuclear stations, run by EDF, reached a major milestone this week, clocking up 2000 terawatt hours (TWh) of zero carbon electricity – enough to power all the UK’s homes for more than 18 years.
