The Government are committed to ensuring that conditions are right for investment in new nuclear in the UK and continue to work with interested parties to secure this investment. We have completed our facilitative actions on planning, financing for decommissioning and waste disposal and reactor design and set out reforms to transform the power sector to enable future low carbon investment, including new nuclear. It is for energy companies to construct, operate and decommission nuclear power stations without public subsidy. Industry has set out its plans to develop up to 16GW of new nuclear power in the UK by 2025.
