How we generate our electricity

We'reBritain's biggest generator of zero carbon electricity(1), generating zero carbon electricity fromwind+nuclear+solar.

We've never been busier helping cut UK carbon emissions to nothing

By generating zero carbon electricity fromwind,nuclearandsolar我们可以权力的国家n, whatever the weather.

Wedevelop, build, operate and maintain renewable technologiesthroughout their lifetime, specialising in wind power, solar and battery storage technology.

We run a large fleet oflow carbon nuclear power stations我们正在建设一个新的核power station atHinkley Point, and planning a second atSizewell.

Wind

We are one of the UK and Ireland’s leaders in developing wind projects

Nuclear

We’re investing in a new generation of low-carbon nuclear power stations

  • Hinkley Point Cin Somerset will provide low-carbon electricity for around 6 million homes and create thousands of jobs
  • Sizewell Cwill be an almost identical replica of Hinkley Point C and could save nine million tonnes of CO2a year*
  • In 2021 around a fifth of the UK's electricity is generated by oursix nuclear power stations

* for each year of operation compared to a gas-fired power station

Solar

We have an ambitious vision for solar and battery storage in the UK and Ireland

  • Our first solar farm of grid-scale atSutton Bridge, Lincolnshire, will be approximately 139 hectares in size
  • Plans for amajor solar farm and battery storage projectat Longfield, Essex
  • We are building solar panels on the roofs of a number of Tesco’s largest stores in England which will supply them directly with renewable power

Helping Britain achieve Net Zero

We're investing to accelerate the UK’s shift to low-carbon nuclear
and renewable energy and storage

Renewable energy

Creating a Net Zero future where clean energy powers our lives

We’re already one of the UK and Ireland’s leading renewable energy companies, developing, building, operating and maintaining innovativewind,solarandbattery storage projects. We’re also investing in decarbonising the UK’s transport sector and developing vital power infrastructure for charging electric vehicles.

Our expert team is helping England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales to achieve their ambitious low carbon targets - and we want to do even more. We’re planning to build five times what we already have in operation responsibly and sustainably.

Building new nuclear power stations

Helping to provide a secure energy supply for the future

Alongside the growth of renewables, nuclear has a key role to play in providing a steady base of reliable, low-carbon power to the UK.

In just a few years many of theUK's power stations are expected to close. If they are not replaced, there might not be enough electricity supply to meet the demands of houses and businesses.

As well as helping the UK’s future energy needs, building and developing new nuclear power stations atHinkley PointandSizewellwill create thousands of jobs and opportunities to British people and companies.
