Govt should invest in renewable energy not old nuclear power tech

by Steve Beasant on 4 June, 2018

Commenting on government plans to invest in Wylfa nuclear plant, Former Liberal Democrat Energy Secretary Ed Davey said:

“The government are wrong to be favouring old nuclear technology when recent dramatic cost reductions in renewable power and innovations in storage technology have made alternative low carbon options cheaper, as well as secure and more flexible.

“This money would be much better spent giving the go-ahead to the exciting Swansea Bay tidal lagoon, as part of a long term programme to harness cheap clean tidal power, to complement wind and solar power. “
