New nuclear power offers low carbon, affordable, and reliable energy to keep the lights on – which is our top priority.

I can tell my Honourable Friend that the Department is focussed both on engaging with the 6 individual new nuclear proposals from developers, and also supporting the exciting future prospects for small modular reactor technology.
