Department of Energy and Climate Change press release
In response to Centrica’s announcement today on new nuclear, a Department of Energy and Climate Change spokesman said:
“We are determined to make the UK a leading global destination for investment in new nuclear, which will play a key role in our future energy mix. We welcome EDF Energy’s continued commitment and determination to take forward the Hinkley Point C project.
“The decision by Centrica reflects the company’s investment priorities and is not a reflection on UK government policy. The recent purchase of Horizon Nuclear Power by Hitachi is clear evidence of the attractiveness of the new nuclear market in the UK.”
