Sizewell C Nuclear Initiative Opens Doors for Private Stakeholders Posted on: September 19th, 2023 The UK government has initiated the process for private investors to express their interest in the Sizewell C power station, a pivotal element of the nation’s nuclear renaissance. The Energy Security Secretary, Claire Coutinho, announced the commencement of the investment process, inviting potential partners to showcase their interest in the project. Sizewell C, anticipated to house two of the world’s most potent nuclear reactors, aims to provide low-carbon power to nearly 6 million homes for six decades, mitigating 9 million tonnes of carbon annually. The government’s commitment to the initiative is evident with a £700 million investment, marking the first direct public funding in a nuclear project in recent times. The project is also backed by EDF, the lead developer. All investments will undergo rigorous national security evaluations. The government’s broader vision includes revitalizing nuclear power, with plans to derive up to a quarter of the UK’s electricity from nuclear sources by 2050.
