The UK government’s Energy Bill is coming back to Parliament this autumn in its draft form. When it is eventually passed into law it will set the country’s energy policy for the foreseeable future. The government is pressing ahead with its policy of moving to renewable energy sources but this is looking increasingly as though it will be just a supplement to nuclear energy. The North Sea’s natural gas supplies are steadily depleting and a complete reliance on supplies from further afield in a world of political and economic uncertainty, is really unthinkable. A way in which to burn coal to generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way has as yet proved impossible to find. These factors combined indicate that building new nuclear power stations is the only option available to us if the UKs increasing energy requirements are to be met. Plans are already in the pipeline for a Sizewell C and another new station at Hinkley Point. Although some countries are at present turning away from nuclear power it is extremely likely that the increasing demand for electricity in the years ahead will force a renaissance in nuclear power generation? Is there a possibility that at some time in the future a nuclear power station will be built on the North Norfolk coast, a location that in the past was deemed suitable?
