Low-carbon nuclear energy

EDF is leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission electric future, tackling climate change and helping the UK reach net zero. We are Britain’s largest producer of low-carbon electricity(1), meeting around one-fifth of the country’s demand and supplying millions of customers with electricity and gas.

Investing in nuclear power

  

Around a fifth of the UK's electricity is generated by our eight nuclear power stations, helping power our customers' homes and businesses.

EDF is also leading the UK's nuclear renaissance with the construction of a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C, and plans for new power stations at Sizewell C in Suffolk and Bradwell B in Essex.

Nuclear power is the most affordable, low-carbon energy source currently available to the UK. EDF is playing a key role in the development of nuclear sites, while Hinkley Point C will provide low-carbon electricity to meet 7% of the UK demand. The project is already making a positive impact on the local and national economy as well as boosting skills and education.
