Europe Needs Nuclear For Climate Change And Energy Security, Says Foratom DG

Feb 1, 2018

Nuclear energy contributes to the European Union’s three key energy objectives laid out in the bloc’s energy union initiative of security of supply, competitiveness and environmental sustainability, Yves Desbazeille, director-general of industry group Foratom, told journalists in Brussels on 29 January 2018.

According to Mr Desbazeille, the EU must continue to focus on achieving its ultimate goal of cutting CO2 emissions, transitioning to a low-carbon economy, ensuring security of energy supply and creating jobs. He said the EU should continue to use “all the best tools available”, including nuclear energy.
