Nuclear Industry Association responds to net zero commitment

12 June 2019

In response to Government’s commitment to meet net zero by 2050, Tom Greatrex, chief executive of the Nuclear Industry Association said:

“The commitment by Government to meet net zero by 2050 is undoubtedly positive news.

“For decades nuclear has consistently provided reliable, large scale, low carbon energy and will play an integral role in achieving net zero. That is why it is essential Government gives the necessary support to ensure our ageing nuclear fleet is replaced.

“Building new nuclear plant will not only provide the low carbon power we need, but will continue to provide thousands of jobs up and down the country.”
