The UK established the world's first civil nuclear programme in 1956. The country’s 15 reactors generate over 18% of the country’s electricity, down from a peak of 26% in 1997. Nuclear power is recognised as a source of low carbon power and is seeing continuous investment, notably at sites such as Hinkley Point.
