EDF Moves Closer to Second New Nuclear Project in Britain

  • Utility submits Development Consent Order for Sizewell C
  • New plant will provide about 7% of U.K.’s electricity
While its other project, Hinkley Point C, is taking longer to build and costing more than planned, Sizewell C is a copy which should make it 20% cheaper to build, according to EDF.
