mallowstreet University Digital Roundtable: Sizewell C Project Update

We are currently suffering from an unprecedented crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic. In anticipation of the end of this crisis, we must ensure that our economy is ready to recover strongly. However, we must also ensure that the UK's legally binding target to achieve net zero by 2050 is not forgotten, and that we make our recovery a strong green recovery.

For this to happen, we must seize the opportunity to develop major projects that will indelibly transform our country for the better.

Join the team from Sizewell C as they provide an update to their proposed new nuclear project in Suffolk. This project would provide 25,000 new job opportunities, a UK-wide supply chain and low-carbon energy to power 6 million UK homes. A regulated asset base model for new nuclear is currently under review by the UK government. If adopted, this financing model would allow UK financial investors, like pensions funds, to invest in the Sizewell C project. The model would provide a long-term, low risk, regulated return on investment.

This morning session is accredited for CPD points by the Pensions Management Institute (PMI) and is exclusively for pension fund decision makers and their advisers.
