Life Extensions

Where technically and financially viable to do so, EDF Energy, who run the UK’s current operating stations, will look at life extensions.

Running stations for longer means they can contribute to meeting our energy policy objectives and prolongs the massive local benefits including high quality jobs, supply chain benefits and local infrastructure.

Each station operating in the UK makes a major contribution to the local and national economy through its spending on services and jobs as well as local and national tax. That includes around £40 million a year on wages for employees, in addition to business rates and millions paid in national tax.

*EDF Energy has previously stated that it expects to confirm a 20-year extension for Sizewell B, extending its lifetime to 2055.
