UK offers 40-year subsidies to encourage new nuclear builds
Feb 19, 2013


The move is a reversal of an agreement made in 2010, under which ministers promised that no nuclear plants would be built in the country with public subsidy. Cost overruns for new nuclear build around the world as well as the exit of a number of utilities from the UK in recent years led the government to backtrack on its position. In an effort to ensure that the price of electricity remains below the politically symbolic number of 100 pounds ($155.21) per MWH, ministers are proposing contract extensions with state subsidies from the original 20 years to 30 and 40 years.
