To assist Nottinghamshire County Council in winning their bid to secure a site for the first-of-its-kind nuclear fusion plant.

Our role

The Cascade team assisted Nottinghamshire Country Council with their parliamentary engagement, championing the huge potential that former coal power stations in the county had for this scheme, alongside the local infrastructure and supply chain.

Some of our messaging
  • West Burton is situated in Britain’s ‘Megawatt valley’, at the heart of the UK’s power generation industry for decades via coal and gas fired power generation.
  • It represents the greatest opportunity to capitalise on the benefits to meet the strong imperative for levelling up.
  • The proposal both complements and supports the efforts of local partners to establish a Mayoral Combined Authority led devolution deal for the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire area.


Cascade helped position West Burton A power station to be chosen to be the UK’s and potentially the world’s, first prototype commercial nuclear fusion reactor.
