15 sites will now move into detailed site assessment over the next six months.
The sites are:
|Dounreay||Caithness and North Sutherland Regeneration Partnership (CNSRP).|

On completion of the assessment process, UKAEA will make its recommendations to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy who will make a final decision on the site around the end of 2022.
Our recommendations will be based on a set of key criteria,
covering a range of topics, including:
- Technical and operational suitability
- Alignment with STEP’s socio-economic and community benefit principles
- Support for the commercial progress of the project
