UK's latest 'carbon budget' sees 5-10 GW of nuclear in 2050

In its sixth carbon budget, the Climate Change Committee puts the share of nuclear in the UK's electricity mix at between 5 GW and 10 GW by 2050. The country currently generates about 20% of its power from nuclear, but nearly half of its current capacity is to be retired by 2025. One new plant is under construction, Hinkley Point C, while the government has yet to comment on its support for a second, Sizewell C. These twin-unit plants would have a combined capacity of 6.4 GW.
