Lady Barbara Judge CBE, Chair of the Institute of Directors will deliver a lecture entitled “The Future of Nuclear” as part of the Bristol Distinguished Address Series.
Successive governments have claimed support for renewing the UK’s ageing nuclear energy infrastructure, but progress to date has been slow. Hinkley point C will be a massive engineering challenge, requiring significant funding from China, but it can only be the first of a new generation of nuclear stations.
Lady Barbara Judge CBE will look at the state of play when it comes to nuclear power, and the issues governments face when deciding to build new power plants.
