Nuclear Power

Welcome to the nuclear section of the DTI’s website. This sector has been developed as a source of general background information about the civil nuclear industry in the UK and the issues for which DTI is responsible.

Take part in a consultation on the Future of Nuclear Power.

This sector includes information about nuclear power, the history and development of the nuclear industry in the UK, nuclear power generation technologies, and the regulatory framework within which the industry operates.

As will be seen from these pages, the DTI's role is a varied one, encompassing: industry ownership and supervision, regulatory activities to protect the public and international safety and technical assistance to the former Soviet Union and Eastern European countries.

For further information about all the organisations mentioned in this section please go to the 'Nuclear Websites' menu heading.

For nuclear-related publications please go to the Nuclear section of the DTI Publications site.

While the site will be up-dated on a regular basis, it should not be seen as a source of up to the minute information on every issue.
