A zero carbon mix to power the nation, whatever the weather

We're Britain's biggest generator of zero carbon electricity(1), find out how we generate zero carbon electricity from wind + nuclear + solar.


We're investing to accelerate the UK’s shift to
low-carbon nuclear and renewable energy and storage to
Help Britain achieve Net Zero

Plan for a green recovery

With the right policies in place, we plan to enable investment in low carbon technologies in the UK worth over £50bn by 2035. This amounts to 12GW of wind, solar and nuclear power – meeting one fifth of UK demand.

Building new nuclear

We’re building new power stations that will help meet Britain’s future electricity demand for the next 60 years – good news for the jobs market and the race to Net Zero.
