The Nuclear Skills Strategy Group (NSSG) welcomes "Powering Up Britain", the government’s plan to improve the UK’s energy security and transition to net-zero by 2050.

The document acknowledges the challenges of developing a skilled workforce for the nuclear industry. It also confirms the government will continue supporting the NSSG’s strategic plan to ensure the industry has the skills and expertise needed to deliver a low-carbon future for the UK.

Co-chair of the Nuclear Skills Strategy Board – which oversees the NSSG – and Head of Nuclear Skills at EDF, Jennie Chapman, said:

“We welcome the ‘Powering Up Britain’ report and its recognition of the important role nuclear power can play in achieving a low-carbon future for the UK.
