Hinkley Point C is on the north Somerset coast in the south west of England and will sit alongside an operating nuclear power station, and one being decommissioned.
Marking a significant milestone in the revitalisation of our nuclear power industry, Hinkley Point C will make a major contribution to the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions. The electricity it generates will avoid 9 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year, or 600 million tonnes over its 60-year lifespan.
