The UK needs a reliable and secure energy supply and nuclear energy makes an important contribution to this supply. In 2013, the Nuclear Industrial Strategy established a long term approach for the sector to stimulate economic growth and create jobs in this country.
Following a comprehensive review of the Hinkley Point C project, and a revised agreement with EDF, the Government has decided to proceed with the first new nuclear power station for a generation. However, Ministers will impose a new legal framework for future foreign investment in Britain’s critical infrastructure, which will include nuclear energy and apply after Hinkley.
A power station at Hinkley Point has the potential to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions, bring private investment into the UK economy and create around 25,000 jobs at the peak of construction. It will provide a clean source of home-grown energy, providing 7 per cent of the country’s energy needs. However, we need to ensure that we have the best deal for our countries interests.
