BECBC response to Government’s Energy White Paper

BECBC, Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster, underlines the importance of nuclear energy generation as it welcomes the Government’s Energy White Paper.

John Grainger, BEC Business Cluster’s Executive Director said: “ We have been waiting a long time for the Energy White Paper to appear. The UK needs large, small modular and advanced reactors as it prepares to invest in infrastructure that will help deliver net zero targets. This is partly also to offset the loss of existing generation as gas cooled reactors come to the end of their operating life in the next few years. The announcement gives encouragement to the Supply Chain members of BECBC that can will be a critical part of supporting investment decisions nationally. This White Paper is a critical document that underpins the importance of nuclear generation as part of the clean electricity push. More importantly it injects that much needed business confidence that our economy has been waiting for after a period of uncertainty.”
