• Decommissioning nuclear plants is too expensive – myth!
    Decommissioning is usually funded while the plant is operating. Experience to date gives a good idea of costs and earlier estimates are being revised downwards.
  • Nuclear provides no solution for heating – myth!
    This is another misleading assertion. The most efficient form of heating is by means of heat pumps. A heat pump uses electricity to recover heat contained in the ground, the air or in any water
  • Nuclear provides no solution for transport – myth!
    Again this is not strictly true. The most promising fuel to replace oil is Hydrogen. The lowest cost and most efficient way to produce non carbon Hydrogen is by means of nuclear power.
