About EDF Energy
As one of the largest energy companies in the UK, EDF Energy supplies around 6 million residential and business accounts with electricity or gas. It produces up to 20% of energy supplied in the UK and is committed to supporting the development of the next generation of scientists and engineers. This is achieved through their award winning educational programme ‘The Pod’ and educational visits to their energy production facilities across the country.
The Pod – EDF Energy’s award wining education programme – is now the largest programme of its type with over 17,500 registered schools across the United Kingdom, and over 10 million children and young people engaged.
The programme aims to inspire young people and their families to choose a more sustainable lifestyle, to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) and encourage science and engineering as a career choice and to help children and young people understand that a low carbon, secure and affordable energy supply is vital for the future.
