We generate electricity from eight nuclear power stations, more than 30 wind farms, one gas and two coal power stations as well as other sources.
EDF is helping to secure the UK's low carbon energy future with the construction of a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C. This will provide low carbon electricity to meet 7% of UK demand. The project is well underway with more than 3,600 working on the construction site in Somerset. It is already having a positive impact on the local and national economy, as well as boosting skills and education.
We hope to start building another nuclear power station, Sizewell C in Suffolk, in 2021. By replicating the design of Hinkley Point C, we can lower costs at Sizewell C so that nuclear energy remains competitive with other low carbon technologies.
EDF provides gas and electricity for around 5 million customer accounts. We offer innovative energy systems for commercial customers and digital innovation for customers at home. EDF has also launched its own innovation accelerator, Blue Lab, which focuses on making customers’ lives easier.
