Nuclear energy in the EU long-term strategy

Nuclear energy currently generates about one quarter of electricity in the EU, though more than half of the overall capacity is installed in just one country, France. While some member states are phasing it out, others are examining whether sufficiently sound economics and robust safety regimes can be guaranteed for nuclear energy to make a significant contribution to a low carbon future. This workshop will discuss the assumptions that underpin the EU’s long term energy decarbonisation scenario and the role nuclear can play in achieving the Union’s energy and climate policy goals.
