Europe needs both nuclear and renewable energy to meet its challenging targets. Global concern about climate change will intensify in the next few years.
Energy Live News XPO 2019 theme for this year will be Climate Change – Doing our Bit.
To reach climate change goals, and contribute towards broader sustainable development goals, a significantly greater deployment of low carbon energy technologies, including nuclear, is needed.
At Energy for Humanity we share the mission described by Energy Disruptors of uniting the entire spectrum of the energy industry around the common goal of accelerating pragmatic and profitable solutions to the world’s biggest energy challenges.
Africa is hungry for energy, and nuclear power could be part of the answer for an increasing number of countries. A third of the almost 30 countries currently considering nuclear power are in Africa.
Debate on how Europe can achieve its vision for carbon-neutrality by 2050 through a socially-fair transition in a cost-efficient manner.
EFH Director, Kirsty Gogan will join the panel on international perspectives on the state of advanced reactor concepts and deployment around the world. What are some of the common challenges and opportunities?
Exploring the political, philosophical and cultural dimensions of choosing nuclear energy.
The first national conference dedicated to bringing together key voices from across sectors to explore the commercialisation of small nuclear in the UK.
Kirsty Gogan discusses the role of nuclear and partnerships in the clean energy transition at the IAEA Atoms4Climate conference.
A handful of new nuclear projects in Europe and the USA have suffered high profile construction delays and cost overruns. Yet in many countries, new nuclear power projects are being delivered on time and budget.
Kirsty Gogan told the #Atoms4Climate conference at the IAEA Vienna headquarters that most new-build projects today are delivering very low-cost, successful nuclear programmes.
WNN Viewpoint: Recently we witnessed a welcome example of evidence-based decision-making in Europe’s energy and climate change policies, write Kirsty Gogan, Rauli Partanen and Eric Ingersoll.
ENDS report on progress in defining the EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy
“If nuclear is excluded from sustainable finance, it will result in both new build and life extensions for existing fleet being more difficult to finance, making our climate challenge harder, more expensive, and more likely to fail.”
If you haven’t heard the news – last week we had a win for science-based climate policy-making.
Clip from an interview with upcoming Energy Institute podcast
If the EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy excludes nuclear, it may result in both new build and life extensions for existing fleet being much more difficult to finance.
