Home electric car charging points from EDF Energy, Scottish Power and more - where to buy Boris Johnson is set to announce plans that would mean that all new homes will need to have an electric car charging point installed by 2022. The government expects that this move will lead to more than 145,000 new charging points each year.
Swanscombe Peninsula earmarked for £2.5bn London Resort theme park project confirmed as site of special scientific interest
A wildlife haven earmarked for the development of a multi-billion pound theme park has retained its special protected status. The Swanscombe Peninsula has been confirmed as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its grassland, wetlands, birds, and invertebrates – including one of the rarest spiders in the country.
Sizewell B is officially the most efficient nuclear power plant in the UK, according to EDF Energy. A spokeswoman for the nuclear power plant said the station had produced the highest proportion of the theoretical maximum amount of energy it could have generated out of any nuclear plant in the UK.
A final decision on the proposed £20 billion power station will likely be reached next April A joint statement by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust and RSPB has outlined the two charities "significant concerns" with proposals for a new £20 billion power station on the Suffolk coast. Earlier this month EDF Energy, which has a controlling stake in the Sizewell C project, set out £250m of financial contributions, known as the Deed of Obligation, designed to mitigate the impacts of the project, provide legacy benefits and compensate some of those affected.
A licence was granted in August to dump hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sediment Dumping hundreds of thousands of tonnes of sediment from Hinkley Point into the Bristol Channel at Portishead carries a “very low risk”, project leaders say. Chris Fayers, the 3.2-gigawatt power station’s head of environment, said the material had been tested more than other sediment along the British coastline and is safe for swimmers and marine life.
The proposed Sizewell C nuclear power station on the Suffolk coast is a front-runner for Government funding before the 2024 election, it has been reported. The funding could come as part of the Government’s Net Zero strategy, which is said to detail how the UK’s carbon emissions will be brought down to net zero by 2050, according to the Telegraph.
BREXIT BRITAIN is on track to take back control of its energy market with the Government reportedly planning to fund the Sizewell C nuclear power plant in Suffolk. The ambitious project could receive funding as part of the Government's commitment to reaching net zero emissions by 2050. Once operational, the site is expected to meet about seven percent of the nation's demand for power.
The energy’s big six (British Gas, E.ON, EDF Energy, npoweSSE and ScottishPower) have implemented price rises for customers on their standard variable and default tariffs. Ofgem announced earlier this year price cap would be higher in October. They say it is due to a global increase in electricity and gas prices, which are now at their all-time high, but also due to one of the coldest winters in the history of Europe.
The developers behind the bid to build a new nuclear power plant at Sizewell have revealed details of their £250million package of funding to mitigate the impacts of the site - but Suffolk County Council still has 'big tickets' concerns over the project. The examination phase of the £20billion nuclear facility plans has concluded, with interested parties setting out their positions.
EDF Energy sets out £250million plan to mitigate impacts of Sizewell C if it is approved, but Suffolk County Council says there's still 'big ticket' concerns
A £250million package of funding to mitigate the impacts of Sizewell C has been pledged by developers if it goes ahead – but Suffolk County Council has said that 'big ticket' concerns remain that it is addressing directly to the Government. The examination phase of the £20billion nuclear facility plans has concluded, with interested parties setting out their positions.
1.7million householders have had to deal with their energy supplier going under in the past six weeks, adding to further uncertainty about shortages and the cost of living Four more energy suppliers have entered crisis talks with warnings they could collapse as early as this week. The failures are linked to the soaring price of wholesale gas which has resulted in 12 firms collapsing this year and nine in September alone.
Four more energy firms could go bust this week with their customers transferred to higher tariffs. It is understood the companies have already begun talking to the regulator Ofgem and announcements on their future could come as early as Wednesday. After a torrid autumn so far, Sky News reported the industry is bracing itself for further collapses.
EDF expected to remain majority shareholder of Pod Point after £110m deal last year with energy giant and the likes of Legal & General Electric vehicle charging company Pod Point is to pursue a City float as investors look to cash in on motorists switching away from petrol cars. The charging infrastructure business, founded in 2009 by Erik Fairbairn, was bought out by France’s EDF Energy last year and has a network of 13,000 public chargers.
Energy crisis: What options does the government have for helping industry - and what does industry want?
The record high prices suppliers are paying alongside shortfalls in gas supply across Europe have sparked concerns that the UK could face an energy crisis this winter. Wholesale prices for gas have increased 250% since the start of the year, and there has been a 70% rise since August.
JUST five years after getting the go-ahead, the number of people across Britain working on the Hinkley Point C power station has reached 22,000, builders EDF Energy announced this week. This includes 6,300 on site, compared to just 1,500 at the height of the pandemic. An EDF spokesman said that the number of workers on site was due to increase to 8,500 in the next 18 months.
More energy companies are likely to collapse during a difficult winter with even major firms thought to be vulnerable, it has been warned. Business minister Kwasi Kwarteng didn’t deny he was preparing for the possibility of a ‘big six’ supplier, with millions of UK customers, collapsing when put on the spot by Andrew Marr earlier.
ENERGY firms will have an "unfair advantage" over customers and could benefit financially from price hikes, experts have warned. Industry heavyweights are likely to see their market share increase as they establish a "near monopoly" after a number of smaller firms went bust. Profits could rise for the "big six" - British Gas, EDF Energy, E.ON, SSE, Npower and Scottish Power - in spite of the price cap, created to "protect customers from being ripped off"
After Ofgem announced the energy price cap hike in August, many companies such as British Gas said they would be upping their costs leaving many customers worried about what it means for them. In recent months, many people have heard how the energy crisis has caused nine smaller companies to go bust in September alone.
MILLIONS of UK homes could face an energy blackout "in the next few days" after France warned it will unveil countermeasures against Britain over the fishing licences dispute. It comes following a recent announcement by French Europe Minister Clement Beaune who threatened to use energy supplies as a way to "put pressure" on Britain to end a fishing dispute.
EDF Energy's hopes of building Sizewell C on the Suffolk coast could receive a boost this week, with the Government expected to commit to investment in nuclear energy. It is understood the Prime Minister will use his speech at the Conservative Party Conference on Wednesday to commit to a massive investment programme in renewable and nuclear power.
