Generating energy

We build and run across the UK, and we run a large fleet of low carbon nuclear power stations and a smaller fleet of coal and gas stations.

We are building a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point and are planning a second at Sizewell.

Renewable energy

亚博电竞lpl直播EDF Renewables is a joint venture between  (EDF’s global renewable 亚博电竞lpl直播) and EDF.  

We’re one of the UK’s leading renewable energy companies, owning 35 wind farms – including two offshore wind farms – and one of the largest operational battery storage units in Europe.

Nuclear New Build

We strongly believe that nuclear has a key role to play in providing reliable, low carbon and affordable energy to the UK, helping to meet future demand. That's why we are investing in Nuclear New Build projects.
