Lord West (Labour): We must start tackling the crisis in the UK’s future energy supply – nuclear and renewables can deliver a secure, low carbon system and meet growing electricity demand, writes Lord West.

As the old nuclear power stations come to the end of their lives and coal plants are closed down, in less than a decade the crisis will be upon us. The plan that one third of energy needs would be met by nuclear are clearly in disarray and there has to be real doubt over whether renewables can fill the gap.
