Chris Skidmore: Chris Skidmore: Nuclear power. More small reactors in the future? Fine. But we need more big ones soon if the lights are to stay on. The status quo is clearly unsustainable: the UK energy market can no longer afford to be so heavily dependent on the pricing of gas, unreliable weather patterns for wind and solar – and we must not return to coal. This provides us with both the brilliant opportunity and financial incentive (or perhaps imperative) to invest and grow the UK’s nuclear fleet. We no longer have the luxury of kicking this can down the road, we need investment into new nuclear power facilities as soon as possible.
