At the end of 2020 our Hinkley Point C project achieved another key milestone!
We’re really proud that during 2020 we raised an incredible £177,602 from employee fundraising and donations for our charity partner Prostate Cancer UK. The challenges of the last year didn’t stop our employees from doing what they could to fundraise in the most imaginative ways. We've been running, walking, cycling, doing virtual quizzes, competitions and games, all to help fund vital life-saving research. #Menwearewithyou
Big Carl, the world’s largest crane, has completed its biggest ever lift at Hinkley Point C. The super-crane lifted a total weight of 575 tonnes to install the first of three massive prefabricated steel rings which form the reinforced cylinder around the nuclear reactor.

This week we were live at Electric Days - EDF's event for innovating energy change. #ElectricDays 2020 saw an action-packed programme of virtual events and key-note speeches. We heard from French President, Emmanuel Macron, EDF Group chairman and CEO, Jean Bernard Levy, alongside business leaders, scientists and even an astronaut! Without question, the hot topic was tackling climate change and the positive message from the experts was that we can achieve #NetZero by 2050. We have the technology in place. What we now need to focus on is creating the right political, financial and regulatory context for success. You can find out more and see recordings of the programme here:
