The article explores the nuclear energy industry of Great Britain. It notes on the efforts of the industry to make energy affordable in the future. It cites two realistic alternatives for the future of nuclear energy in Great Britain, namely, a replacement scenario that would maintain the current 16 GW capacity up to 2025 and an expansion scenario that builds on the initial GW programme and looks at the research and development implications for achieving 40 GW from nuclear sources by 2050.
