The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

UK ‘should fund green heat over nuclear’ 

http://www.energylivenews.com/2017/10/20/uk-should-fund-green-heat-over-nuclear/

That’s according to former Energy Secretary Sir Ed Davey MP, who told ELN although nuclear power should be “kept on the table because it’s low carbon and may be needed in the future”, the energy source is still expensive and inflexible.

He added spending money on renewable heat would be much better for people’s bills.

Sir Davey said: “If we can get cheap green heat, as we’ve managed to achieve cheap green power, that’s going to make everyone happy because they’ll be paying a lot less for their energy”.

He also suggested Brexit could result in UK energy prices rising as fewer interconnectors to trade gas and electricity  will reduce supply.
