Britain relies on nuclear power in the fight against climate change. A new nuclear power plant should help reduce the country’s CO2 emissions. The approval could already be given next year.

According to a newspaper report, the London government relies on nuclear power to meet its climate goals. Before the 2024 elections, the financing of a new nuclear power plant will take place as part of its climate strategy, “The Telegraph” reported.

Suffolk as a possible location

“We are trying to approve at least one more major nuclear project in the next few years to strengthen energy security and create thousands of jobs,” a government spokesman said when asked by Reuters.

The Sizewell C site in Suffolk county in south-eastern England is being considered the location of another nuclear power plant, the newspaper writes, citing people familiar with the matter. By 2035, the UK aims to cut carbon dioxide emissions to zero.
