Our view on nuclear power
Meeting the UK’s long-term energy challenges could see a major investment in new nuclear power stations.
Our position on nuclear power is that we:
- recognise nuclear power's role in providing low-carbon electricity generation as part of the national energy mix;
- insist that nuclear installations achieve high standards of safety, security, environmental protection and radioactive waste management; and
- believe that Government and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority should continue to demonstrate credible commitment to making progress with geological disposal of radioactive waste.
