The Government firmly supports the building of a new fleet of nuclear power stations as part of its strategy to ‘decarbonise’ the power industry. It is also clear that the new programme will be financed by the industry, without any public subsidy. Here, long-time nuclear industry observer Professor Stephen Thomas from the University of Greenwich looks back at how we arrived at the present position on a new-build programme, and suggests that the economics for nuclear power without subsidy simply don’t stack up.
