UK may build seven nuclear plants by 2050

LONDON (AFP) – Britain could build up to seven new nuclear power plants by 2050, as well as boost offshore wind to diversify energy sources, a senior minister said yesterday.

“If we fast forward to 2050, there is a world where we have six or seven (nuclear) sites in the United Kingdom (UK),” Business and Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng told The Sunday Telegraph.

“That isn’t going to happen in the next two years. But it’s definitely something that we can aspire to.”
