The NIA Responds to the Climate Assembly UK Report

10 September 2020

Responding to the Climate Assembly UK Report, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, says:

“People who took part in the Citizens Assembly want to see real action to meet Net Zero – more electric vehicles, decarbonising home heating, and stopping burning fossil fuels as the main way to generate electricity.

“As the Committee on Climate Change have shown, Net Zero means four times as much clean power as now for the UK to stop burning polluting fossil fuels. Emissions-free, reliable and secure nuclear power is needed for Net Zero – complementing wind and solar but also creating skilled, long term jobs as part of the green recovery that we need to make Net Zero happen.”
