In reaction to Sizewell C being granted a nuclear site licence by the Office for Nuclear Regulation (link), Tom Greatrex, the Chief Executive of the Nuclear Industry Association, said:
“This is an important step for what will be the country’s cleanest and most powerful energy project. Sizewell C will power six million homes for over 80 years from a tenth of a square mile, creating thousands of jobs and pumping billions of pounds into the local economy.
“What is important now is that the project reaches Final Investment Decision during this Parliament so the next step of the project can start in good time.”
