ⓘ Moorside clean energy hub

Moorside clean energy hub is a proposal put forward on 30 June 2020 by EDF and 14 other companies and trade unions, to create an energy hub that would produce electricity and hydrogen through the use of nuclear power and renewable energy.

                                     

1. History

In 2018, Toshiba abandoned its plans to build a power plant on the site, known as Moorside nuclear power station. The clean energy hub proposal was put forward to provide an alternative use for the site, in line with the UKs need to decarbonise its electricity grid and ensure reliable sources of electricity production.

The proposal for the Moorside site includes the construction of a large scale nuclear power plant with two EPR units, replicating Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C, for a total capacity of 3.2 GWe. It is hoped to lower construction costs and reduce construction times thanks to the experience gained during the construction of the two sister plants. The proposal also includes Rolls-Royce SMR or AMR modular reactors, renewable energy generation, hydrogen production and battery storage technologies.

The Nuclear Industry Association welcomed the proposal for the Moorside site, with the CEO adding, "These are exactly the attributes the country needs to bounce back from COVID-19, deliver jobs, and get us on track to hit Net Zero. Large scale and smaller, next generation technologies have a huge amount to offer working as part of the clean energy hub concept. They can deliver clean electricity and achieve deeper decarbonisation through the creation of hydrogen, clean fuels and district and industrial heating."
