Chief Executive and founder of renewable energy company Good Energy, Juliet Davenport OBE, has voiced her concerns ahead of the decision on Hinkley C.
She said: “The decision to go ahead with Hinkley C is a bad move. It will take at least a decade to build and leave our grandchildren an inheritance of high energy costs, hazardous waste, security worries, and a plant that needs complex and costly decommissioning. No wonder only 36% of the British public support nuclear, compared to a whopping 76% for renewables.
“The same future generations that will blame us for Hinkley, could instead thank us for a legacy of investment in renewables.
“The transition to renewables is inevitable and brimming with economic opportunity – the UK should embrace it.”
