Commenting on the House of Lords Science & Technology Committee report on nuclear research and technology, Dipali Raniga, Senior Energy & Environment Policy Adviser at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said

“This report rightly recognises the need for Government to set out a decisive future for the civil nuclear industry post-election, and recognises the role that nuclear research and technology can play in the UK in the coming years and decades. 

“There are already opportunities available such as developing a UK Small Modular Reactors programme which, if designed well and delivered expeditiously, could deliver across the ‘Industrial Strategy Pillars’ as set out in the green paper earlier this year.

“It would also contribute to delivering cost-competitive, low carbon energy, together with UK industrial opportunities in the supply chain, skills development and university research in the energy sector and beyond.”
