The energy market has been in the news recently with major energy companies increasing their prices … first SSE prices rose by 8.2%, British Gas by 9.2% and NPower by 10.4%.
There have also been developments in Britain’s nuclear plan, with Chinese and French investment enabling more nuclear power plants to be built to meet our ever increasing demand for energy.

What do you think? Is nuclear better than developing renewable energies? Will it bridge our energy gap?
