The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Sizewell C nuclear project- subsidised construction, subsidised power generation, subsidised waste management, subsidised company.

 Commenting on the Business and Energy Secretary announcing £100 million
to support the continued development of the Sizewell C nuclear plant,
Greenpeace UK’s policy director Dr Doug Parr said: “This cash injection
is a tacit admission by the government that nuclear is not commercially
viable, but they are so fixated on getting 20th-century nuclear technology
delivered they’ll just keep throwing taxpayers’ money at it. Including all
the other subsidy sources,

Sizewell C will now have subsidised development,
subsidised construction, subsidised power production and subsidised waste
management, for a project by a subsidised company. The economics of this
project are all over the place, with UK taxpayers left to pick up the tab.
Instead of pursuing outdated, costly technologies, it’s time the
government got a grip on the clean technology race going on globally and
went for 100% renewables power as fast as possible.”
