Why New Nuclear?
The UK faces a significant energy challenge. It must secure future energy supplies as existing nuclear, and fossil fuel power stations close, and the demand for energy rises. At the same time, the UK must play its part in tackling climate change by reducing carbon emissions.
Nuclear energy is an existing technology that can be used to produce a large amount of electricity, safely and without emitting carbon at point of generation. Nuclear energy has an important role to play in helping the UK to meet these energy challenges, and it must continue to be part of a balanced energy mix.
Investments in nuclear, such as Moorside, will benefit the UK, and shape its energy landscape for more than 60 years.
