Nuclear Sector Deal Virtual Event

In June of this year we celebrated the second anniversary of the Nuclear Sector Deal (NSD) and we consider this an increasingly important time to pause and reflect on what has been achieved so far.

The NSD, released in June 2018, is a commitment between government and industry to work together to drive green economic growth and make nuclear power an integral part of the UK's energy future. Its main objective is to generate significant socio-economic benefits for the UK, ensuring greater job opportunities, cleaner energy and a secure supply of nuclear power for all.

We’ll be joined at the event by a range of organisations and senior leaders who will talk about the positive steps that have been taken to achieve the NSD targets, what progress has been made so far and what are the key challenges that must be unlocked to achieve the agreed goals by 2030. This will be a good opportunity to understand how, by increasing collaboration, diversity and innovation within the nuclear sector, our industrial productivity could improve significantly, while offering clean, affordable and reliable nuclear energy for all.
