COVID-19 – How the UK’s Nuclear Industry is Responding

The nuclear industry is working closely with Government to maintain the health and safety of its workforce and operations, and to ensure energy demands will always be met in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NIA will continue to post regular updates here on the industry’s response to the evolving situation.

The Nuclear Industry Association (NIA) is the trade association for the civil nuclear industry in the UK. It represents more than 250 companies across the UK’s nuclear supply chain. The diversity of NIA membership enables effective and constructive industry-wide interaction. NIA member companies have significant expertise in nuclear decommissioning and clean-up, with 17 nuclear sites in the UK currently being managed through the process. 

We believe nuclear energy is essential to meet the UK’s clean energy needs. Together with renewables and energy efficiency, nuclear can reduce carbon emissions. As part of a diversified energy mix, nuclear-generated energy provides safe and reliable electricity for UK homes, hospitals, schools and industries.
