The Nuclear Option

In a groundbreaking move, 198 signatory countries to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) officially advocated for the accelerated deployment of the low-emission technologies, including nuclear energy. This historic shift, the first in its kind since the inception of the annual climate summits in 1995, aims to facilitate deep and rapid decarbonisation, particularly in challenging sectors and industries. Furthermore, the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) Statement from COP28 on Nuclear Power garnered support from numerous countries, emphasising the need for active recognition and backing of nuclear energy. The statement underlined the resilient and robust nature of nuclear power, and highlighted its potential to contribute significantly to achieving net-zero carbon emissions while maintaining the highest standards of safety and security.
