Macron says nuclear will remain key energy source for France via France24

Nuclear power will remain a key part of France’s energy supplies, President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday in a show of support for the industry even as he looks to reduce nuclear’s dominance as a power source.

France has said it will cut its reliance on nuclear energy to 50% from 75% by 2035 and has yet to make a final decision on whether to build next-generation EPR nuclear reactors.

That is due by 2023, by which time state-controlled utility EDF‘s Flamanville 3 EPR project should be up and running, but Macron said he wanted to make a big push on preparations by next year.

Macron nonetheless signalled broad support for the industry, even as he flagged the need to move more towards renewable energy. He said France’s next-generation aircraft carrier would be nuclear-powered.

[…]

“The nuclear industry will remain the cornerstone of our strategic autonomy,” Macron said.

Some environmental campaigners have hit out at this policy, with Greenpeace calling nuclear energy a “false solution” to climate change concerns, saying it entailed costs that could be better spent on cleaner solutions.

France is continental Europe’s only nuclear power.

    If you are planning to do any online shopping on the Internet, especially if it involves any international transactions, then you need to know how to access the Dark Web, otherwise known as the “Netherlands” for free. Although most of us are aware of the existence of the Dark Web, very few of us know how to actually access it and get what we need from it. The Dark Web is a part of the World Wide Web that is not accessible with common search engines such as Google or Yahoo! In other words, it is part of the World Wide Web but is not accessible through the usual websites that you browse on the Internet. This is one reason why more people have been seeking how to access the Dark Web, especially since many online scam operations have been springing up in this part of the world.
