The Nuclear Industry Association has welcomed the Labour Party’s support for new nuclear projects as part of its Great British Energy plan, including getting Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C over the line, extending the lifetime of existing plants, and backing Small Modular Reactors.

In response, Tom Greatrex, Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:

“I welcome Labour’s commitment to progress vital new nuclear projects as part of its Great British energy plan. Hinkley Point C and Sizewell C will be cornerstones of the UK’s clean energy revolution, providing reliable zero-carbon power for 12 million people for over 80 years, creating thousands of good, green jobs.

“New stations too, including Small Modular Reactors, will boost energy security and bring investment to parts of the country that need it most, helping the UK become a clean energy powerhouse.”
