The Government’s Energy Review has highlighted the role nuclear energy can play in delivering a sustainable energy mix for the UK. Nuclear has come back into the equation given concerns over increase in oil and gas prices, rising CO2 emissions, the potential for blackouts, fossil fuel imports and uncertainty over renewable sources. However, against this backdrop nuclear energy generating capacity will decrease significantly over the next decade as many stations come off line and the timeframe for new nuclear build is tight.
New nuclear build projects are being delivered to time and cost with high levels of reliability in countries such as Japan, China, South Korea with new plans in France and Finland. This presentation will consider the viability of new nuclear build, what products are available, their performance and characteristics.
