Energy UK responds to Govt nuclear funding announcement

Responding to the Government’s announcement on new finance model to fund new nuclear power stations, Energy UK’s chief executive Emma Pinchbeck said: 

Nuclear will play an important role in the mix as we look to fully decarbonise the power sector, as we know that the cheapest route to a secure, affordable energy system is one where we use all the low carbon technologies we have available."

"We have been calling for certainty for new large scale nuclear and welcome the Government’s announcement today. At the same time, it will be important that the Government looks at a fair and consistent way of allocating the costs and benefits of supporting all low carbon technologies for the public, in its forthcoming affordability review.”
