GMB – the energy union – has told Ministers ‘no nuclear – no net zero’ as the All Party Parliamentary Group on Nuclear Energy releases its ‘Roadmap to 2024’. The report, out today, says the UK must ‘restore nuclear capacity to at least 10GW with deployable technologies, by the early 2030s’. GMB members working in the nuclear industry have been helping provide low carbon energy since the 1950s, while investment in nuclear supports more jobs than any other large-scale low carbon and renewable alternatives.

The government has today been urged to make sure that the country has at least 10 gigawatts of operational nuclear capacity by the early 2030s as the current fleet of power plants begin to be shut down. In a new report, the cross-parliamentary group for nuclear power urged ministers to commit to new nuclear projects in order to keep on track to achieve its net zero goal. Developing such capacity would put the government in line with the recommendations of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) in its latest carbon budget.
