UK, French Governments Sign Declaration on Nuclear Energy
The UK and French governments have signed a declaration on nuclear energy and also agreed to cooperate on climate change action.
Signed before national leaders’ discussions over the European Union’s ( EU) 2030 energy and climate policy framework, the declaration reiterates the two governments’ shared view that nuclear power has a critical role to play in a cost-effective low carbon transition.
Specifically, the two countries have agreed to constructively engage with the European Commission’s State aid consultation on Hinkley Point C to demonstrate that the project meets state aid rules, maximize opportunities for small medium enterprises (SMEs) in nuclear supply-chains, and also to fund joint training and skills centers.
