Hinkley Point C Review of the Year: The so-called UK nuclear renaissance “increasingly looks less a rebirth than an unsatisfactory assortment of stalling, disjointed projects” according to energy Journalist Tim Probert. At the end of 2014, six years after EDF Energy first announced its intention to develop Hinkley Point C, the Bristol Post says we can finally be reasonably confident the project will go ahead. But the paper still expresses some doubts, because EDF Energy has yet to make the final investment decision and one of its partners, Areva, has some financial challenges: “But in all likelihood the project will be confirmed early in the new year”. Not everyone would be quite so bullish. To many it feels like the project is sleep walking towards disaster. It’s just that no-one is quite sure whether the disaster will be a virtually ‘unconstructable’ power plant struggling to come into operation years late and vastly over-budget or the collapse of the whole project before it even starts.
