Representatives from the major energy suppliers are scheduled to meet energy secretary Chris Huhne this week to discuss the progress of nuclear plans.
Chief executives will meet with Mr Huhne on Thursday (July 15th) at the Department for Energy and Climate Forum to urge him to press ahead with plans to build a new generation of nuclear power stations across the country, reports the Telegraph.
EDF Energy said that it is vital for the government to reverse nuclear power's declining share of electricity generation as part of its wider energy action plan in order to reduce emissions.
EDF's chief executive Vincent de Rivaz is expected to ask for the government to set out its nuclear plans and to schedule a date for parliament to vote on them as soon as possible.
Officials in Whitehall said Mr Huhne views the upcoming forum as a chance to assure the nuclear industry that the new coalition government is committed to enabling proposals for new nuclear builds to come forward.
