This High-Level Economic Panel will explore the recent report of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre.
This is the most positive statement about nuclear to emerge from any EU body for many years. Its resounding endorsement of nuclear’s environmental benefits and outstanding safety record will help nuclear take its rightful place alongside other low carbon energy technologies as a key part of the global response to climate change.
Extending the life of existing nuclear plants will accelerate progress towards net zero in this decade while increased investment in new capacity, including advanced and small modular reactors, will drive down both costs and carbon emissions in the 2030s.
