Griffiths, K. Energy giants to battle for new power stations. Daily Telegraph. 02/04/2007

The world's largest energy companies, including EDF, E.ON, which owns Powergen, and RWE, are hoping to be part of the government's multi-billion pound nuclear building programme. The utility companies want to parcel nuclear power and deliver it to households and business customers. The German utilities are particularly interested in the UK market because their home country has strong anti-nuclear sentiment. Also preparing are nuclear reactor builders, in particular Areva, General Electric and Westinghouse. British Energy also owns the sites that are most likely locations for the next generation of reactors because they are licensed and have the necessary infrastructure in place.
