Foratom: Europe needs

nuclear for climate change

and energy security

(foratom) Nuclear energy contributes

to the European Union’s three key

energy objectives laid out in the bloc’s

energy union initiative of security of

supply, competitiveness and environmental

sustainability, Yves Desbazeille,

director-general of industry group

Foratom, told journalists in Brussels

on 29 January 2018.

According to Mr Desbazeille, the EU

must continue to focus on achieving its

ultimate goal of cutting CO 2 emissions,

transitioning to a low- carbon economy,

ensuring security of energy supply and

creating jobs. He said the EU should

continue to use “all the best tools available”,

including nuclear energy.

Mr Desbazeille said nuclear was

not mentioned in the EU’s latest ‘Clean

Energy for All Europeans’ legislative

package, although it is currently

providing almost half of the EU’s lowcarbon

electricity.

He said adjustments are also

needed to the way the European

energy markets work in order to stimulate

investment in long-term energy

capacities. A higher price to carbon

emissions is needed to encourage such

investments and a revision of the EU

emissions trading scheme (ETS) will

be a “key instrument” for decarbonising

the EU’s economy, Mr Desbazeille

said.

On the UK leaving the Euratom

treaty as part of Brexit, Mr Desbazeille

said the EU and UK should not delay

negotiating their future relationship

in the civil nuclear field and in

particular defining the parameters of

a transitional period.

Euratom is the treaty which underpins

the nuclear industry and the

trade in nuclear materials in the EU.

WNA outlines vision

for future of electricity

(wna) Harmony is the nuclear industry

vision supported by the World

Nuclear Association (WNA) for the

future of electricity and how nuclear

energy can help the world achieve its

2° climate target.

According to WNA, nuclear power

capacity will need to grow signifi cantly

around the world in order to meet

the International Energy Agency’s 2°

scenario. “By 2050, nuclear energy

must account for 25 % of energy

genera tion if we are to meet our

climate targets. With nuclear making

up 11 % of generation in 2014, an extra

1000 GW in nuclear capacity will need

to be built by 2050” states Agneta

Rising, WNA Director General. “However,

meeting this goal will not be

easy”, she adds.

One of the actions being undertaken

by the Harmony programme is

an evaluation of current barriers and

recommended solutions. These can be

summarised as follows:

Electricity market failures: Ensure

a level playing field for all low carbon

energy sources including nuclear.

Regulatory barriers: Harmonise

international regulatory processes to

ensure consistency, efficiency and

predictability.

Misconception of risks and benefits:

Address public concerns and put the

health, environmental and safety risks

of nuclear in perspective compared to

other power generation technologies.

“FORATOM very much welcomes

the work being undertaken by the

WNA. Indeed, Europe faces many of

the same challenges, and opportunities,

as other regions”, underlines

Yves Desbazeille, FORATOM Director

General. “Globally, the EU is the

region which emits the lowest amount

of CO 2 emissions from electricity generation

thanks to nuclear energy. We

look forward to continuing our fruitful

cooperation with the WNA and

making sure our positive messages

about the real value of nuclear energy

resonate across Europe”.

Head of ROSATOM Alexei

Likhachev announced 2018

the Year of Nuclear Science

(rosatom) On the 6th of February

2018, speaking at the function at the

Presidium of Scientific and Technical

Board of ROSATOM dedicated to the

Russian Science Day, Director General

of ROSATOM Alexei Likhachev

announced 2018 the Year of Nuclear

Science.

Likhachev reminded that the

nuclear sector had appeared in the

world owing to fundamental scientific

discoveries and today’s achievements

of Russian nuclear scientists in many

respects were based on scientific
