Plans for the Wylfa Newydd power station on Anglesey have been given a boost by a report from the Nuclear APPG (All-Party Parliamentary Group) which calls for the government to make urgent decisions on the project’s future. The report – Net Zero Needs Nuclear: A Roadmap to 2024 – says the government should commit to at least one additional nuclear power plant by the middle of 2024. Wylfa is seen as one of the best nuclear sites in Europe and would be a key contender for this investment. However, Horizon Nuclear Power officially withdrew its planning application for the proposed power station in January. The APPG report highlights the need to restore UK nuclear capacity to at least 10Gw based on deployable technologies by the early 2030s.
