GMB, the energy union, has welcomed EDF’s submission of a planning consent order application for the new Sizewell C power station. 

Justin Bowden, GMB National Secretary, said: 

“GMB welcomes the EDF planning consent order application which will be crucial if the UK is to have sufficient reliable energy to keep the lights on, homes and businesses powered and to meet net zero targets. 

“A balanced energy mix, which includes new nuclear and green gas, is crucial as intermittent wind and solar on their own cannot meet the UK’s energy needs.”
