WWF COMMENTS ON NEW FUNDING FOR “MINI NUCLEAR POWER STATIONS”

WWF 7th Dec 2017, Gareth Redmond-King, head of Energy and Climate at WWF commented on the announcement by the UK Government of £56 million of funding for new advanced and small modular reactors – “mini nuclear power stations”

“At a time when the cost of large-scale nuclear is increasing, and the cost of renewables is plummeting, it is bewildering that the UK Government should be committing yet more money to new nuclear – only a matter of weeks after a freeze on renewables funding was announced.

“Small-scale nuclear is untried, untested technology which will deliver nothing for over two decades. Meanwhile, the next wave of offshore wind – not to mention onshore wind and solar – could deliver when we actually need them, during
the 2020s.”
