EDF denies ‘retreat’ from the UK

French energy giant EDF has denied reports that it was considering a retreat from the UK energy market because of the government’s energy policies.

Last week, reports suggested EDF was “weighing options to distance itself from the British energy market”.

Since then the French firm has reiterated its commitment to the UK.

A statement issued by EDF, said: “EDF is more committed than ever to the UK market and to strengthening its ­existing retail business.”

EDF is currently building two new nuclear reactors at Hinkley Point in Somerset, which has been plagued by delays and additional costs.
