Will France give up its role as a nuclear powerhouse?


Recommended Posts

President Hollande wants to create a public debate on the future of nuclear energy in France. He wants to reduce the country's reliance on nuclear energy to around 50% of the total power supply in France. That would mean that no new nuclear reactors would be built in France. :) Experts argue that "a future France that abandons nuclear would impoverish global nuclear R&D".


“France’s reduced backing for nuclear will certainly be a blow to nuclear power’s reputation,” says Chi-Jen Yang, an expert in technology policy at Duke University’s Center on Global Change.
