Nuclear energy is essential to meeting the UK’s clean energy needs and vital to the country’s security of energy supply. Since the 1950s, the industry has attracted significant investment to the UK and created jobs across the supply chain. It contributed £6.4 billion to the UK economy in 2016, representing 0.3 per cent of the UK’s GDP.
Despite its longstanding contribution to the UK economy, the nuclear industry has seen the suspension of the Wylfa and Moorside nuclear projects.
The UK’s departure from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) creates greater uncertainty across the sector. Brevia Nuclear is well placed to ensure that your organisation’s concerns and the importance of the industry is heard by political stakeholders.
As COP26 approaches, Brevia will be tracking the latest milestones in the UK’s preparations for the upcoming climate conference. This week’s developments cover the CCC’s upcoming Climate Risk Assessment, the launch of the New Net Zero Business Group Alliance, and questions surrounding green taxes.
The momentum behind COP26 has created an apparently benign climate for low carbon investment in the UK, however that could all change at next week’s Scottish Parliament election. The 2021 Scottish Parliament elections will be the latest in a series of public ballots, since 2014’s Scottish Referendum, where the future of the United Kingdom is at stake. Due to Brexit and COVID19 it has perhaps been understated how important the Scottish election will be. However, depending upon its result, we could see British politics dominated by the issue of Scottish independence in the same way it was dominated by Brexit in recent years. Businesses whose investments depend on policy decisions yet to come must be mindful of this. As the question of Scottish Independence may leave politicians and officials will little time to consider anything else.
As COP26 approaches, Brevia will be tracking the latest milestones in the UK’s preparations for the upcoming climate conference. This week’s developments focus on the recent Climate Summit, Earth Day, the launch of the Global Power System Consortium, and the Climate Pledge.
