UK should not be building Sizewell C, and rollout of small nuclear reactors will be a nightmare – energy boss.

A nationwide rollout of small nuclear reactors has been hailed as a “nightmare” by Dale Vince

The Founder of a British energy company has expressed his doubts about the government’s backing of Sizewell C.

A few months ago, ministers confirmed the first state backing of a nuclear project in more than 30 years, with a £700 million stake in Sizewell C in Suffolk.

Speaking to GB News, Dale Vince, Founder of Ecotricity, said: “It (nuclear energy) is much more expensive. It eats tens of billions of more public money than renewables have. And we will do it for a very long time because we have to actually deal with the radioactive waste as well.

“I think that what we have, we should keep and we should use it as we transition into 100% green energy. We shouldn’t be building Sizewell, the next one.”

Mr Vince questioned the turnover of such large projects and when asked about Rolls-Royce’s small reactors said: “What a nightmare. A proliferation of mini nukes around the country.”

  1. Nuclear power is too expensive, too dangerous, and totally unnecessary for our energy needs. Go to http://thesolutionsproject.org/ They have a plan to power all 50 of the United States with just solar, wind, geothermal and hydroelectric power. We have the technology and the resources to transition to renewable energy by 2030. The only obstacle to achieving that goal is the lack of political will, because the profit addicted fossil fuel and nuclear industries have bought off our elected leaders in the government with their campaign donations.
