1) The future need of electricity production is not declared.
2) The potential rise of the sea level caused by climate change can result in a higher risk of flood and coastal erosion than assumed in the National Nuclear Policy. This risk has to be assessed
3) In case of a severe accident in Wylfa with a containment failure, whole of Europe could be contaminated severely.
4) Any new NPP in UK needs to prove that a severe accident with a containment failure is not possible! If an accident happens, it has to be guaranteed that the full damage will be covered.
5) For every new NPP the safe disposal of all spent fuel and radioactive waste has to be proven in an EIA. It is not enough to present only plans for future disposals, especially if no functioning solutions for final disposals exist anywhere in this world.
