Energy UK responds to the Government’s plans for the expansion of nuclear power

Responding to today’s announcement from the Government on plans for the expansion of nuclear power, Energy UK’s Deputy Director Kisha Couchman said:

“Today’s Civil Nuclear Roadmap reiterates the critical importance of nuclear power as a reliable, low-carbon, domestic source of energy in our transition to a decarbonised power system. If we are to strengthen the UK’s energy security and meet our Net Zero targets, we will need to rapidly scale up all forms of low-carbon power, including large nuclear and small modular reactors, by ensuring there are viable routes to market for new projects and a resilient supply chain.’
