The NEA encourages governments to take advantage of the post‑COVID‑19 economic recovery to accelerate the energy transition towards meeting climate objectives.
- Post‑pandemic recovery plans to reconcile climate objectives with economic goals need to put system costs at the heart of energy policy.
- Nuclear energy projects achieve deep decarbonisation with optimal use of land and mineral resources.
- Moving to a carbon neutral electricity system without nuclear power would significantly increase system costs and threaten security of supply.
- Achieving cost‑effective decarbonisation requires structural reform of the electricity market.
