ClientEarth React To Hinkley C Decision


The Director of Programmes for international environmental law organisation ClientEarth, Karla Hill, has responded to the government’s decision on Hinkley C.

She said: “This decision shows a lack of long-term strategic thinking that will not help the UK’s transition to an energy system fit for the future. We should be moving to decentralised, renewable production, with a focus on demand and energy efficiency. Instead the government is locking consumers and taxpayers into a huge centralised infrastructure project.

“When Theresa May announced a pause to examine the decision, we were hopeful that the government had realised what a mistake this would be. We will now have to deal with Hinkley Point C posing a constant threat to the renewable, decentralised energy system that consumers and the climate need.”
