NIA reaction to new jobs at Hinkley Point C and wider benefits report

25 May 2021

Reacting to revised estimates for job numbers at Hinkley Point C, and the Socio-Economic Impacts Report for the project, the Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, Tom Greatrex said,

“Hinkley Point C shows how nuclear investment is vital to levelling up the country, sustaining thousands of high skilled, well paid jobs and generating billions of pounds of investment in the South West in particular.

The Government’s Energy White Paper and Ten Point Plan envision deploying much more nuclear power, replicating these benefits for communities up and down the country. That is why we urge the Government to bring forward a financing model for new nuclear capacity to make that vision a reality.”
