ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the results of the review of the nuclear energy policy in Great Britain. He expects that the costs of designing, building and managing nuclear power plants will be covered by the private sector. He cites that there is no guarantee that the sector will obtain return on investment in nuclear energy. He anticipates that complaints will likely arise from non-nuclear energy providers due the possible decision of the government to provide tax breaks to the nuclear sector.
