UK new nuclear: status update inquiry


The Government is counting on new nuclear to supply a significant proportion of the UK’s demand for low-carbon baseload power in future. The focus right now is on Hinkley Point C but there are other important projects in the pipeline. The Energy and Climate Change Committee is holding a session to hear from commentators that have raised concerns about financing nuclear projects. The Committee will also question energy companies planning to build reactors about the challenges for new nuclear across the UK.
