NUCLEAR

Brevia is the leading UK public affairs consultancy supporting UK civil nuclear. Our cross-party team of consultants have supported clients covering the full spectrum of the civil nuclear sector including waste management and decommissioning, new build, advanced technologies including AMR and SMR, fuel manufacture, research and innovation, waste storage, and fuel transportation. 

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.

Set against the human tragedy that is unfolding in Ukraine, these events can seem small or insignificant in comparison. Nonetheless, they are likely to have enduring consequences for everyone in Europe. Particularly when it comes to how Europe, including the UK, powers itself.

What did the White Paper tell us about the Levelling Up Agenda?

Last week, the Government published its long-awaited Levelling Up White Paper. The White Paper goes some way to answering the vexed question of ‘What is levelling up?’, by setting out twelve missions the Government hopes to accomplish by 2030. In addition, the Paper sets out a framework for extending devolution in England which could increase the transparency of the process.
