This is to provide sufficient flexibility to ensure carbon savings are delivered across the economy in the most cost effective way.</p><p>However, DECC does produce projections of UK emissions that account for the impact of Government policies.

unstar this property answer text <p>There are a number of factors that are considered to make marine nuclear propulsion reactors unattractive for landside electricity generation, when compared to a conventional reactor that has been designed specifically for this purpose. All of these are likely to add to the levelised cost of electricity generation from a propulsion reactor used for electricity generation purposes for the national grid, compared to a dedicated land-based reactor. These include the following:</p><p>1) Propulsion reactors are designed for more rapid power cycling than is currently demanded from landside reactors.</p><p>2) The power density of a propulsion reactor is much higher than one would need for a landside power reactor.</p><p>3) The serviceable lifetime for a propulsion reactor is shorter than for a power reactor.</p><p>4) Propulsion reactors are smaller than most reactor designs, varying between a few tens of MW to about 150 MW, resulting in relatively little capacity per unit.</p><p>5) Propulsion reactors’ design would result in the regulatory compliance costs of their landside use for electricity generation being greater than those for a dedicated landside reactor.</p><p>The first two issues add to capital costs of design and construction, the second two to operational costs and the final to regulatory costs.</p>
