UK Nuclear Fission Technology Roadmap Preliminary Report

UK Nuclear Fission Technology Roadmap Preliminary Report is the name of a new report by NNL that sets out possible nuclear new build scenarios, and  some of the key issues and decisions that will need to be made for developing a long-term nuclear programme and R&D roadmap.

Industry, academia, regulators and other key stakeholders were consulted widely to compare two plausible scenarios for nuclear expansion to 2050 and beyond – a 16 GW Replacement Scenario and a 40 GW Expansion Scenario  – to understand what this means in terms of research and technology development and the timelines for required actions. These scenarios represent two realistic options for nuclear deployment in the UK.
