The estimated decommissioning and long-term radioactive waste management costs for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant have been provided by NNB Generation Ltd and reviewed by the Department.

Based on these estimates, we anticipate that the costs will account for around £2 per megawatt hour of the strike price for this power station.
