With off-shore wind set to produce electricity cheaper than Hinkley ever will, Molly writes for the New Statesman on why politicians on all sides should reject nuclear.
The publication of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2017 is a further blow to the nuclear industry.
Molly has issued a challenge to MPs in the South West to unite against Hinkley and in favour of resurrecting previously shelved offshore wind projects.
Following an announcement that energy from offshore wind in the UK is now cheaper than electricity generated from new nuclear, Molly has renewed a call for Hinkley C to be scrapped.
The European Parliament has this week backed a Green initiative which aims to extend the life of consumer products.
Soaring costs and further delays to Hinkley could lower financial returns for EDF and result in consumers being ‘arm-twisted’ into paying even higher prices, Molly has warned.
Molly has written to 15 local authorities asking what plans they have in place to deal with an emergency nuclear incident at Hinkley.
Molly calls again for Hinkley to be cancelled as National Audit Office agree it is ‘risky and expensive’.
Molly has accused the government of failing consumers and the environment over energy policy following projections that onshore wind and solar will be as cheap or cheaper than gas by 2020.
Molly has challenged the government to follow the EU and embrace the ‘circular economy’ post-Brexit.
