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.
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.

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.
The Clean Energy Ministerial Flexible Nuclear Campaign is among the first efforts to include flexible advanced nuclear technologies in large-scale modelling of energy systems.
Open Letter: “We believe that the urgency of the climate crisis is reason enough to abandon the nuclear phase-out in Belgium and Germany.”
The UK’s Nuclear Innovation & Research Advisory Board (Nirab) has recommended that the UK Government should consider investing up to GBP1 billion (USD1.3 billion) between 2021 and 2025 to boost the progress of innovation in the nuclear energy sector.
On 29th March 2019, Energy for Humanity submitted a response to the European Investment Bank (EIB) Public Consultation on its Energy Lending Policy (ELP).
