Recommendations are made for both industry and Government to minimise risks in delivery of the programme, and at the same time maximise UK content. These include:
- To attract young engineers the Government should consider subsidising tuition fees for university engineering courses.
- Industry should work with councils to secure a future for the broad skills that will be developed by the local people.
- Government should complete the facilitative actions required on strike price and electricity market reform to enable final investment decisions to be made.
- Government should actively promote investment initiatives to support nuclear.
Opportunities and challenges associated with delivering the fleet include the creation of 30,000 jobs, the importance of joint-ventures in de-risking contracts, and the need to increase supply chain capacity to meet the programme demands.
