National Infrastructure Assessment | Study
In July 2021, the Commission was asked to offer advice to government on whether an additional new nuclear plant, beyond the proposed Sizewell C project, is needed to deliver the sixth Carbon Budget.

This advice was provided to government ahead of the Budget and Spending Review in autumn 2021.
