The announcement of a final investment decision on the new Hinkley nuclear power plant, followed swiftly by a surprise delay from the UK Government on going forward with the project, dominated the news headlines last week.
Utilitywise’s Strategy and Innovation director Jon Ferris was seen across TV, radio and print discussing the recent Hinkley developments, the role of new nuclear and the other options open to the Government in tackling the UK’s energy challenges.
Jon was interviewed live on BBC Business News on Friday 29 July, and you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2iAYTbfdfQ

Jon was also quoted on Bloomberg, City AM, Utility Week and Decentralized Energy highlighting findings from Utilitywise which show the UK could offset more than the electricity output from Hinkley simply by implementing ESOS energy efficiency measures. The cost of implementing these measures is estimated to be less than £6 billion, one-third the cost of the new nuclear power station.
