Globally, the power and utilities sector is experiencing challenges and reforms the like of which have not been seen for 20 years. Security of supply (power), decarbonisation and energy costs are key policy drivers for almost every nation and nuclear power is currently being implemented in over 50 countries. Nuclear is widely recognised as an important part of the solution for low carbon electricity generation, and as a result many counties have embarked on significant nuclear programmes and market reforms to accommodate nuclear power as a significant element of their future energy mix. These programmes are not without challenges; from capital expenditure costs in excess of US$5bn a unit, the need for extensive and rigorous policy and regulatory systems as well as the requirement for international co-ordination related to proliferation and liability. All of these challenges have a significant impact of the available finance for nuclear power.
Our service lines have been developed and sculpted based on what we have seen in the market and what we believe will provide value to clients. We offer a truly multi functional approach meeting the integrated needs of our clients with focus on delivery and solutions to challenges; as a result we have a dedicated team of experts delivering advice to clients across the nuclear lifecycle.
