New nuclear power stations could form an important part of an affordable UK transition to a low carbon economy by 2050. However there is a range of constraints which could impact their rate of deployment and their ultimate capacity limit in the UK. The Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has completed two projects intended to better understand the constraints and opportunities for new nuclear. In this lecture, Mike Middleton of the ETI will summarise the results from these projects and the insights gained into the potential deployment of both large nuclear power stations and Small Modular Reactors in the UK.
The Energy Technologies Research Institute are pleased to welcome environmentalist and Founder Director of Forum for the Future, Jonathon Porritt, CBE to give a public lecture. The lecture will be preceded by an introduction by Professor Karen Cox, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, and a panel debate chaired by Professor Paul Ekins, OBE around the question: is UK energy policy fit for purpose?
In this lecture, Jo Coleman, strategy development director of the Energy Technologies Institute, will discuss some of the key points of ETI energy futures report, “Targets, technologies, infrastructure and investments – preparing the UK for the energy transition”.
