Bosses at EDF Energy are refusing to give any clues over when the next stage of consultation will start for Sizewell C – but say a decision will be made soon. Negotiations have been taking place between the company and Suffolk County Council and Suffolk Coastal District Council over the length and format for the process. Completion of the deal for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant has led to internal changes at the energy giant, which has now had to reconstitute an internal board to include representatives of its Chinese partner CGN. EDF and CGN have an agreement to develop Sizewell C to a final investment decision with a view to build and operate two EPR reactors. During the development phase EDF will take an 80% share and CGN will take a 20% share.
