Green Party: Wyfla news reaffirms that nuclear should be left in the past

17 January 2019

Reacting to the news that Hitachi are to scrap the £16bn Wyfla nuclear power station in Anglesey [1], Green Party of England and Wales deputy leader and prospective candidate for Newport West Amelia Womack said:

“Today’s news underlines nuclear power as obsolete in the twenty-first century.

"There are now many different  forms of renewable energy generation that are cleaner, cheaper, more efficient and don’t come with the potentially devastating environmental downsides.

“It’s now time for the Westminster Government to invest in tidal lagoon power at Swansea Bay and other projects that will deliver Wales’ clean energy future.”
