to plug the energy gap This report, written by John
Loughhead, (Executive Director, UK
Energy Research Centre) is the result of a multidisciplinary
consensus meeting between 150 scientific, technical, economic and
sociological experts at Burlington House on October 12 and 13 2005,
under the auspices of The Geological Society of London
"Nuclear fission energy is a proven and
reliable technology that will inevitably have a key role in a future
clean energy mix"
"It is vital to keep the nuclear
option open. We cannot be confident that the combination of
efficiency, conservation and renewables will be enough to meet the
needs of environmental protection while providing a secure supply of
electricity at an acceptable cost. It is essential to win back
public confidence in this option."
