Nuclear Free Local Authorities says that UK’s new nuclear power will be 20 years too late

The energy crisis is now, new nuclear will be (at least) twenty years too
late. The Nuclear Free Local Authorities were dismayed to hear that the
door of Number 10 will today once more be held open for guests from the
nuclear power industry as Prime Minister Boris Johnson hosts a roundtable
with prospective commercial partners, ahead of a new energy statement later
this week.

Following Johnson’s proclamation that he will look to ‘place
big new bets on nuclear’ and with one cabinet member allegedly describing
the Prime Minister as ‘really gung ho for nuclear’, the participants
are likely to meet with a firm ally. Government resolve will also be
bolstered by the publication last week by the All-Party Parliamentary Group
on Nuclear Energy of a ‘roadmap’ to make sites, money and a pared-down
regulatory environment available to the nuclear industry to enable the
development of a further 15 Gigawatts of new nuclear generating capacity by
2035 and 30 GW by 2050.

The NFLA believes that this hyperbole ignores the
reality that any new nuclear projects will take too long, cost too much and
have too many uncertainties to provide a meaningful solution to the energy
and climate crisis that Britain faces now. NFLA 21st March 2022https://www.nuclearpolicy.info/news/the-energy-crisis-is-now-new-nuclear-will-be-at-least-twenty-years-too-late/
