    1. Probably because the media is in the tank for the fossil-fuel interests, and good news about nuclear power is something they don’t want the public to hear.

    2. It made the BBC News (and other news outlets in the UK) because we’re building an EPR Hinkley Point C and have another in plan for Sizewell C. The news coverage was generally positive.

      I’m old enough to remember the “3 day week” where due to electricity shortages caused by a coal miner’s strike and the oil crisis, commercial users were limited to 3 days use per week. We also had candles for the rolling power cuts.

      Energy security is something UK governments of all colours have taken seriously since then.

  1. Should perhaps be noted that TVO did want to build (and had a permit) for the next plant after Olkiluoto 3 EPR, with EPR being one of the candidates.

    However, with delays in commissioning of OL3, they did not have the cash flow to start OL4 Project and the decision in principle they had expired in 2015.

  2. China is only around 1/6th of US’s Nuclear Energy. And 1/3rd of the US per capita electricity usage.
