What people say

Yves Desbazeille

“Nuclear energy contributes to all key objectives of EU energy policy: decarbonisation of the electricity sector, security of supply and competitive power prices”

Yves Desbazeille, Director General, FORATOM (source: nucnet.org, 6 September 2018)

Yukiya Amano

“It will be difficult for the world to meet the challenges of securing sufficient energy, and to achieve the Paris goal of limiting the average global temperature increase to 2 degrees centigrade, without making more use of nuclear power.”

Yukiya Amano, Director General, IAEA (source: iaea.com, 18 September 2018)
