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.
