Nuclear energy does not stack up economically- Labor Senator Tony Sheldon

Nuclear energy ‘doesn’t stack up’ economically, Labor Senator Tony Sheldon says nuclear energy does not “stack up economically”.

“If it was going to work … the market would be jumping up and down and knocking over our doors right now, right at this minute, to put nuclear energy in place,” he told Sky News Australia.

“The reality is, the energy market itself is saying that is not the best option.

“It is cheaper to have renewables, it’s cheaper to have eventually hydrogen and we have to make sure we have the coal and gas mix.”
