Welcome to the Lean Guide to Nuclear Energy
The policy argument is familiar: we have an energy problem - oil, gas and coal are all in trouble in their different ways. Therefore we must use nuclear energy, there is no alternative.

To find out more, explore our authoritative report The Lean Guide to Nuclear Energy. You can either download it for free or buy a printed copy directly from this website. Alternatively, begin with the brief summary.
