The energy giant will publish extensive proposals for Sizewell C, which is set to bring a wave jobs and opportunities for local businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Last year the government earmarked Sizewell as a designated site for new nuclear build and French-owned EDF confirmed it hoped to build a new power station next to the existing Sizewell B.

EDF Energy wants to see two European Pressurised Reactors (EPRs) at Sizewell C – costing around £6billion and generating enough power to supply five million homes.

  • I'm still not convinced EPRs are the way to go. Not least because one has yet to be tested. The first, due to open in Finland 2009 has been beset with problems and delays and is now due to be completed in 2014.. I seem to remember that Siemens pulled out of the project?. and there was an issue with the computer control systems? Not very re-assuring is it? The energy gap is predicted 2017-2022 so nuclear wont fill this. We will need to extend life of the conventional power stations. If we do this and include carbon capture and sequestation we wouldn't need nuclear at all for some time. By which time something better and less risky can be developed..
