“On the 22 July 2019 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy released a statement covering a broad portfolio of energy packages that will assist in underpinning the Government approach to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. NIRAB welcomes the suite of packages that have been proposed which closely align with NIRAB recommendations published recently [1]. In particular the commitment to the development of Advanced Nuclear Technology systems, including the development of a UK Small Modular Reactor will create value to the UK. Furthermore, the announcement of a consultation on the Regulator Asset Base model is welcomed and NIRAB would like to encourage any interested parties to respond. Please see [2] “
