UK CLAIMS to support nuclear energy without tax-payer subsidy

The government’s energy priorities are becoming clear – and nuclear tops the list, Ever ,  BusinessGreen Blog, 16 june 2010,Ever since taking office as energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne has tried to appear even-handed in the on-going debate between the nuclear and renewable energy sectors.He has elegantly distanced himself from his previous opposition to nuclear, admitting that he would support new reactors if energy firms can demonstrate that they will be built without public subsidy….

..The problem is that while the rhetoric indicates a balanced energy policy, what little action we have seen since the new government took office suggests the nuclear industry is beginning to establish itself as top dog…..it has been the nuclear industry that today received a clear signal from energy minister Charles Hendry that the government will remove the “unnecessary” barriers it faces. In fact,  Hendry’s speech boiled down to a remarkably unequivocal message: “don’t worry, we’ll look after you”.
