    Drop ban on new nuclear, SNP urged

    May 19, 2023 - Daily Mail


      THE SNP Government should reverse its opposition to nuclear energy in order to help keep the lights on, according to a think tank report.

      Campaign group Britain Remade called for Scotland to 'drop the ban on new nuclear' and develop reactors as part of efforts to ensure energy security. Its Powerbook for Scotland report said nuclear energy was key to cutting the UK's dependence on volatile gas markets.

      It said that 'safe, reliable and low-carbon nuclear will be essential to providing baseload energy for a majority renewable grid'.

      A Scottish Government spokesman said: 'Significant growth in renewables, hydrogen and carbon capture storage... will deliver a climatefriendly energy system that delivers affordable, resilient and clean energy supplies.'
