EDF Energy produces almost one-quarter of the nation’s electricity from nuclear, coal and gas power stations, wind farms, and combined heat and power plants. In the context of the energy price crisis following the 2022 invasion of Ukraine by Russia and the drive for Net Zero to mitigate climate change, much has been discussed about the UK's energy security and how our energy is supplied.
This site visit gives us the opportunity to explore nuclear power generation first hand and consider the arguments for and against it being part of the UK's energy mix.
