Europe’s nuclear production to remain constant to 2030

22 September 2010

A recently released European Commission report (Energy Trends 2030), predicts that nuclear energy production will be maintained at current levels to 2030. However the percentage share of nuclear will fall from around 30% in 2005 to 24% in 2030 in the Reference scenario (the share of fossil fuels will increase from approx 38% to 45%).

This conclusion is based on the assumption that phase-out policies will remain in place in Germany and Belgium, and projected nuclear units are built in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Finland, Hungary, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.Europe’s nuclear production to remain constant to 2030
