What is the role of nuclear energy in achieving climate targets in global scenarios?


This factsheet analyses the role of nuclear energy in global climate scenarios. It shows, that a global tripling of nuclear capacity until 2050 is neither realistic nor is it needed to achieve climate targets according to the Paris agreement.

The factsheet presents an analysis of nine global climate scenarios that achieve climate targets according to the Paris agreement as well as two non-target scenarios with an emphasis on the role of nuclear energy.

In order to assess how realistic these top-down scenarios are, it compares these figures with the plans and programmes of governments for the expansion (or phase out) of nuclear power.
