Views on nuclear
Energy UK says that nuclear energy “is expected to play an important part in helping to make sure Britain has the reliable, low carbon energy supplies it needs for the future”.
It adds that following the Fukushima disaster in 2011, the Office for Nuclear Regulation concluded that the “direct causes of the nuclear accident in Japan were far beyond the most extreme events the UK could expect to experience. He therefore found that there was no reason to stop the operation of nuclear power plants or other nuclear facilities in the UK.”
