Ofcom = inept
Clearly they know f--- all about what they are supposed to do.
PLT should never have been allowed to go on sale in this country.

(sigh) it takes an electrical engineer to point out the main problem with a nuclear-thermal-electric generator in space.
These things only work when there is a temperature differential between the reactor output and the ambient environment. As well as heating up the circulating fluid you have to cool it down again. Otherwise you can't extract power from it. Earth-based reactors use cooling towers or river or seawater to get that extra few degrees needed to raise their thermodynamic efficiency.
This is such a non-story.
First of all, your incredibly knowledgeable and no doubt highly paid analyst should be told that silicon dioxide ingots and wafers would be useless, its a pure silicon crystal you need.
Secondly there was a massive fire that took out one of the big chip packaging factories a few years ago, and that had negligible impact on the global market.
Climate change is real and has been happening continuously since the beginning. Ice caps grow and shrink over the centuries. Even if you could show genuine -and not faked- climate data that showed warming was taking place, you could not even prove this was caused by human carbon emissions.
