The first of two online talks about nuclear power in the UK, hosted by researcher and writer on energy, Nikki Jones. How much electricity do our nuclear plants provide? Is it low carbon? Is it affordable? The government looks set to approve a new plant at Sizewell, but is this the best way forward? Researcher and writer on energy, Nikki Jones, answered these questions and more in two free talks in February 2021.
