Rolls-Royce said mini nu­clear plants, which it is de­vel­op­ing as part of a con­sor­tium, would be able to de­liver elec­tric­ity at a sim­i­lar cost as off­shore wind. This week, it was re­vealed off­shore wind costs halved in re­cent years to un­der £58 per megawatt-hour of en­ergy pro­duced. Rolls-Royce said the small mo­du­lar nu­clear re­ac­tors could de­liver power at £60/MWh.
