Britain plans to build 8 nuclear reactors

AA/Istanbul

The British government on Thursday announced its intention to build eight nuclear reactors as part of its new energy strategy.

According to the US agency Associated Press, the government said in a statement that the country intends to build about 8 nuclear reactors to promote long-term energy independence.

“The UK’s energy security strategy will see significant growth in nuclear power as the country seeks to achieve 24 GW of nuclear power by 2050,” he said.

According to the “Associated Press,” this amount of energy represents about 25% of the expected electricity demand in the country.

“A new government body, the Atomic Energy Corporation of Great Britain, which will be supported by significant funding, will be established to immediately undertake new projects,” the statement said.

The government will endeavor to pursue the establishment of a series of nuclear projects as soon as possible and to build eight reactors during this decade.

According to the agency, this target is equivalent to building one nuclear reactor per year instead of one per decade.

According to data from the International Atomic Energy Agency, there are currently 11 nuclear reactors operating in the UK.

According to The Associated Press, the UK generated about 15% of its electricity needs in 2020 from nuclear power.
