Commenting on the analysis, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said, “Nuclear power, in partnership with renewables, is essential to reaching net zero. We should recreate what we have achieved in Northern England and Southern Scotland across the country: getting nuclear and renewables working together to cut emissions. To do that, we need to build new nuclear power stations alongside renewable capacity. These figures show the great service our existing fleet has rendered to the nation, but the time has come to build a new fleet. That investment, as part of a robust zero-carbon mix, will kickstart a green recovery and our transition to a green economy.”
