renewable energy and low-carbon heat solutions, electric vehicle

The business links between Cannington Court and the Hinkley
Point C project along with the close proximity to the construction site to run tours, made us an obvious location choice for the Hinkley Point Visitor Centre.
The visitor centre is seamlessly integrated into the
Cannington Enterprise such that the Conference Centre can o er
the unique visitor experience to delegates, and the visitor centre can
offer the wider facilities to their guests, such as the courtyards and
Brassage restaurant.
The centre highlights the importance of the energy mix and how Nuclear power plays an important part through a number of interactive displays. Visitors are encouraged to explore how electricity is created in a fun and immersive way and learn why there is an overwhelming need to produce low carbon energy.
The centre has been designed to showcase the ever-changing
construction landscape at Hinkley Point C as the build progresses
and the importance Nuclear power plays in producing carbon neutral
electricity in the UK.
It is a fascinating story and we look forward to sharing it with you.
