Nuclear Power in the UK

The consultation process on nuclear power in the UK has ended and the Government is considering the way forward. This Comment, by Malcolm Keay, explores the difficult dilemma the Government is facing. On the one hand, nuclear power looks necessary for energy security and to meet climate change targets. On the other hand, nuclear does not look viable in current market conditions. The Government will have to decide whether to change the rules in order to make nuclear viable – something it has so far set its face against.
