NNWE Chairman, Tim Yeo, responds to the UK Government’s publication of the Clean Growth Strategy

Tim Yeo, Chairman of New Nuclear Watch Europe, responds to the UK Government’s publication of the Clean Growth Strategy:

“The long-awaited Clean Growth Strategy is very welcome especially as it recognises the important role of nuclear power in not only ensuring the UK meets its climate mitigation pledges but also in the jobs and growth that can be provided by new nuclear development.

We entirely agree that new nuclear needs to be cost competitive and would encourage the government to consider all new nuclear development options, both domestic and overseas, so that new nuclear can provide clean, cheap and secure energy which also boosts UK productivity”
