John Cridland, CBI director-general, welcomed the Hinkley nuclear deal as a "fundamental feature of our future energy landscape."
This is a landmark deal which will help us meet our future energy challenges, while boosting jobs and growth.
New nuclear plants must be a fundamental feature of our future energy landscape, and Hinkley Point C is the starter gun to securing the investment we need.
Amid understandable public concern about rising bills, it's important to remember this investment will help mitigate the impact of increasing costs.
The fact is whatever we do, energy prices are going to have to go up to replace ageing infrastructure and meet climate change targets - unless we build new nuclear as part of a diverse energy mix.
