Tim Yeo comments on press reports that EDF has delayed the Final Investment Decision (FID) for the development of Hinkley Point C

Responding to press reports that EDF has delayed the Final Investment Decision (FID) for the development of Hinkley Point C, NNWE Chairman, Tim Yeo said:

“It is disappointing that EDF have delayed their Final Investment Decision (FID) for the development of Hinkley Point C as it is important for the nuclear industry, unions, the government and those who want to see a low carbon energy future that Hinkley does go ahead. We hope that the EDF board will be able to commit to Hinkley in the very near future as it will be a great boost to the European nuclear industry if they do and will act as a signpost for new nuclear development in other European countries. This fresh delay over Hinkley Point underlines how much the future success of the nuclear industry in Britain depends on driving down the costs of new nuclear installations”.
