Amber Rudd - Department for Energy and Climate Change

EDF and its Chinese partner China General Nuclear Corporation (CGN) have committed to

Hinkley Point C during this weeks landmark China State Visit, confirming that Somerset will have

the first new nuclear power station in the UK for a generation.

The companies have signed a Strategic Investment Agreement which marks a critical moment for

the site in Somerset. EDF has confirmed it will take a 66.5 per cent stake in Hinkley with CGN

taking 33.5 per cent, demonstrating a clear commitment from both parties.

The Government and EDF have finalised the detail of the Contract for Difference which offers

increased price certainty for the electricity produced from Hinkley Point C. The Funded

Decommissioning Programme will make sure that the tax payer doesnt pick up the cost of

decommissioning the plant in the future.

Hinkley Point C will provide low carbon electricity to six million homes, twice as many as the

whole of London, for around 60 years and consumers wont pay a penny until the plant is up

and running. It will provide a vital boost for the national and local economy - creating 25,000 jobs,

with at least 5,000 people from Somerset expected to work directly on the project, providing a 40

million boost to the local economy every year. The Energy Secretary will take her final decision

on the Contract for Difference when EDF and GNI have signed the full investment documentation.

A Departmental Minute will be presented to Parliament today regarding the scale of the financial

commitment associated with the CfD and the potential liabilities to arise in relation to those Waste

Transfer Contracts (WTC). I judge the likelihood of these potential WTC liabilities arising to be

very low.
