EDF may let UK nuclear talks fail.

Bloomberg: “Chief Executive Officer Henri Proglio said the French utility isn’t “in a hurry” to agree with the government the so-called strike price it will receive for power produced at the planned plant at Hinkley Point in southwest England. ““We have precise conditions in mind, and we are negotiating with the British,” Proglio told reporters today in Paris. “For me negotiations can fail.” ….EDF is seeking a strike price of at least 95 pounds ($145) a megawatt-hour for the power it produces from Hinkley, and is trying to lock in the rate for 40 years. The government says it’s trying to make sure consumers get the best value for money from any deal.”
