Theresa May's Government is reviewing the Hinkley C nuclear reactor project
This expensive white elephant would hand the keys of Britain's future energy security to the Chinese and French Governments, while blocking investment and grid access for faster and cheaper renewable energy alternatives.
In 2015, Molly Scott Cato MEP published 'The Power to Transform the South West', showing that SW England can provide 100% of its future energy needs solely from renewable energy resources.
In February, Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive of ‘Big Six’ industry body Energy UK joined in – calling for a German-style Energiewende energy transition.
Now is the time to switch to a renewable energy future of ever-cheaper wind, solar, tidal lagoon and biomass power – creating many more jobs than Hinkley C.
