About this event

In 1956 Calderhall 1 was the world’s first Nuclear Power station to generate electricity on an industrial scale. Since then successive UK governments have waxed and waned over the use of nuclear power.
This talk will review the case for civil nuclear power within the UK and addresses some of the fundamental issues, such as: Is it needed?; Is it safe?;  Is it cost competitive?;  What happens when it reaches the end of its design life?;  What are the challenges in building a nuclear station?; What does tomorrow bring?
