Award-winning communications experts in the built environment

Nuclear ENERGY

At BECG, we took the decision to join the Nuclear Industry Association, because of our substantial and growing experience of supporting communications and engagement on nuclear energy projects.


We’ve worked extensively with CGN and EDF in supporting the communications around Bradwell B since 2017, including the stage one consultation in 2020. The emerging pandemic meant BECG and the client shifted rapidly to a remote consultation, and despite this, it achieved the highest level of engagement for any comparable nuclear new build stage one consultation.

Our expertise connects and integrates all our services to support the nuclear sector. 

The National Infrastructure Planning Association identified our virtual exhibition as best practice, which reflects the fact that with Bradwell B, we brought to bear our vast, wider sector expertise in planning communications. This includes supporting over 30 other DCO projects in the infrastructure and energy sector, and from supporting our clients through thousands of local planning applications.

We know the planning process, and we know community and stakeholder engagement inside-out. We’ve worked on all kinds of low carbon energy projects from carbon capture re-fits to new overhead transmission lines, and solar and wind installations. All challenging and complex from a stakeholder engagement perspective, and all vital as we move this country forward to a zero-carbon future.

Furthermore, our specialist Government Relations and Corporate Communications Team have an in-depth understanding of the complex policy and regulatory landscape within which nuclear sits. Working across BECG Group, we help the industry to tell its story to shape the environment in which you operate.

We support the nuclear energy industry, its existing carbonabating fleet, exciting new emerging technologies, its position in the mixed energy economy alongside renewables, and we share its goals and challenges. We’ve made a number of recent hires to consolidate our nuclear energy expertise, and we would love to talk to you to understand how we might be able to support you and the industry.
