EDF is helping Britain achieve Net Zero by leading the transition to a cleaner, low emission, electric future and tackling climate change. It is the UK’s largest producer of low-carbon electricity(1) and supplies millions of customers with electricity and gas.
It generates low carbon electricity from five nuclear power stations and more than thirty onshore wind farms and two offshore wind farms.
EDF is leading the UK's nuclear renaissance with the construction of a new nuclear power station at Hinkley Point C, and there are advanced plans for a replica at Sizewell C in Suffolk. Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C will provide low carbon electricity to meet 14% of UK demand and power around 12 million homes.
EDF is one of the UK’s largest investors in renewables, with more than 1GW of renewable generation in operation and over 4GW in construction, planning and development across a range of technologies including onshore and offshore wind, solar and battery storage. We are constructing our largest offshore wind farm in Britain – the 450 MW Neart na Gaoithe project in Scotland.
EDF is helping its customers, both in business and at home, take their first steps to sustainably powering their lives. Whether it is buying an electric car, generating and storing electricity, selling energy back to the grid or installing a heat pump. EDF is one of the largest suppliers to British business and a leading supplier of innovative energy solutions that are helping businesses become more energy independent. In addition, the company’s energy services business, Imtech, is one of the largest technical service providers in the UK and Ireland.
EDF is part of EDF Group, the world’s biggest electricity generator. In the UK, the company employs around 11,000 people at locations across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
From decommissioning redundant nuclear facilities, through supporting the continuous at sea deterrent, to supporting the operation and build of nuclear power plants, our role in Cavendish Nuclear is to clean up the nuclear legacy and create a world where nuclear plays a key contribution in protecting our nation, ensuring security of energy supply and meeting our net zero commitments. Within Cavendish Nuclear, we work across three core markets: Clean Energy, Defence and Civil Decommissioning.
In Clean Energy we support EDF Energy in the operation of their nuclear reactor fleet and we are part of the MEH Alliance at Hinkley Point C designing and implementing to fit out the UK’s first new nuclear power station in two decades. We also have interests in the wider clean energy market, including Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and Advanced Modular Reactors (AMRs). In Defence and Civil Decommissioning.
We play a leading role in the integration and delivery of complex engineering projects. We deliver concept design, engineering and delivery of major civil and defence nuclear facilities, and decommissioning projects. Our specialist consultancy, radiological laboratories and dosimetry services are also available to our customers.
