EDF Energy welcomes establishment of Nuclear Industries Council and Horizon sale

Wednesday, Oct 31, 2012

EDF Energy warmly welcomes the announcement from DECC to establish a Nuclear Industries Council.

As a key member of the Nuclear Development Forum, we support any effort to build on and take forward its work and welcome the involvement of not only DECC but also BIS and representation from industry.

Input from these key areas will help ensure continued focus on the areas of skills and the development of the UK supply chain which will underpin the nuclear renaissance in Britain.

We look forward to playing our part in the council over the coming months.

The announcement coincides with the news of the sale of Horizon to Hitachi which we also welcome.

This is a clear demonstration of the UK creating the right investment climate for new nuclear.

Like our own projects at Hinkley Point and Sizewell, this sale heralds the provision of future low carbon energy, the creation of thousands of jobs and a timely boost to the UK supply chain and wider economy.
