SSE abandons plans for UK nuclear power plant

Scottish and Southern Energy has pulled the plug on its UK nuclear project. A spokesman for the energy giant confirmed it is planning on pulling out of a consortium, which includes Iberdrola and GDF Suez, by selling its 25% stake – although said it may become involved again in the future.

The energy production company announced in a statement it intends to end its involvement in NuGeneration, a joint venture company established by the three companies to develop proposals for a new nuclear power station, saying it has always taken a “cautious approach” in regard to nuclear power.

Wiles Greenworld London office supplies distributor welcomed the news which it hopes will encourage other suppliers to abandon nuclear energy. The green office supplies company has been encouraging its industry to procure their energy from renewable sources which it says helps organisations obtain carbon reduction.
