Join us for an online panel discussion on Thursday 15 October at 2:30pm.
As the UK looks to implement a green recovery whilst sticking with existing targets for net zero, what does this mean for nuclear energy? Should we be looking to invest in smaller and simpler 'modular' style reactors as a route to meeting our 2050 decarbonisation targets? And if so, how can we do that, boost the economy and 'level-up' the UK at the same time?
