New Nuclear: Does Size Matter? Panel debate at British Science Festival
8th September, 2014
University of Birmingham, UK

In order for the UK to meet carbon reduction targets within the next 20 years, a reliable and economic source of electricity will be critical. With large scale nuclear power plants requiring enormous, high risk capital and facing public opposition, could the development of smaller nuclear reactors in the UK create an opportunity for us to meet these targets and catalyse a supply chain in an emerging global market?

Join the Midlands Energy Consortium, University of Birmingham, the Centre for Low Carbon Futures and a panel of experts to debate this exciting topic and celebrate the British Science Festival.
