Europe’s rapidly shifting geopolitical context over the past few years has underscored the need for an accelerated energy transition. We need a shift toward a more self-reliant and energy-secure future that embraces decarbonization at its core. This can only be achieved by pursuing an options-based climate strategy that embraces a diverse set…
Clean Air Task Force, together with the policy and advocacy consultancy Stonehaven, conducted public polling on awareness and perception of clean energy technologies (including advanced nuclear energy, carbon capture and storage (CCS), low-carbon hydrogen, and superhot rock (SHR) geothermal energy) across six different European countries: Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, and the United Kingdom (UK). This presentation explores the results…
In the race to decarbonize the global energy system nuclear energy stands out as a potentially valuable tool in the toolkit.
Rather than a condemnation of a vital clean energy sector, the project’s cancellation offers an opportunity to glean insights from the hurdles faced by the global nuclear sector and to chart a more sustainable path forward.
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) represent the promise of a new nuclear technology to supply zero-emissions, safe, and dispatchable power.
On July 31st, the Vogtle 3 nuclear power plant in Georgia officially entered commercial operation.
There is no question that nuclear energy could play a valuable, possibly even pivotal role in a low-carbon European future.
If we’re going to decarbonize, we’re going to need a lot more electricity. And if we’re going to do it successfully, affordably, and reliably, we’re going to need to deploy every type of zero-carbon energy technology available to us.
