About this event

By 2030 more than 55% of the UK's older power stations are expected to close, including all but one of our existing nuclear power stations – so investments in the UK's energy future are currently in planning. Consultation began in November 2012 on EDF Energy's proposals for a new nuclear power station to the north of Sizewell B.

Hugh Sutton (EDF Project Development – Nuclear New Build) will explain why Sizewell C would be one of the biggest and most technologically complex construction projects ever built in the UK. Once operational, its two reactors would be able to generate enough low carbon electricity to supply six million homes for 60 years.

This event is free. Refreshments will be served from 6.00pm and the lecture will start at 6.30pm. The venue is a ten minute walk from Chelmsford railway station. Visitor's parking is available on campus from 4.30pm. Booking is not essential but helps us with planning.
