The Sizewell C project is aiming to start construction in 2022. We have completed 4 stages of consultation and plan to submit our application for a Development Consent Order in early 2020.
The Government issued a consultation on the use of the Regulated Asset Base model in July and we hope to see a response and definitive way forward on nuclear financing in 2020.
We have appointed Rothschild as financial advisers to Sizewell C and we are working on sales documents to be issued once we have clear Government policy on the detail of the funding model.
Over the course of 2019 we have done a lot of work on the ESG qualities of nuclear and talked to a lot of you – our materials can be found here https://www.edfenergy.com/energy/nuclear-new-build-projects/sizewell-c and we are always happy to come and explain the case for nuclear to new groups.
