Nuclear energy is a vital component of
a clean energy strategy. Currently nuclear generation avoids the
emission of over two billion tonnes of carbon dioxide each
Nuclear energy can address the competing needs for greenhouse
gas emissions reduction, economic development and energy security.
A wider deployment of nuclear power will reduce the cost of
achieving emissions reductions, and increase the chances of meeting
our climate change objectives. Nuclear is recognized as a crucial
mitigation technology and many countries are planning to use
nuclear generation to meet their emission reduction and energy supply objectives.
World Nuclear News regularly reports on events related to climate change, sustainable development and the role of nuclear energy.
