2019, December, 4, 12:05:00CLEAN NUCLEAR POWER
Nuclear power provides about 10% of the world’s electricity and contributes one third of all low-carbon electricity.

"We need to replace 70-90% of carbon resources of energy by 2050 in order to avoid overheating the Earth," he said, adding that two-thirds of the world's population still relies on biomass. An alarming projection, he said, is that by 2050 African nations will be consuming as much energy per capita as they do now, but their population will have doubled to 1.4 billion. "This will have dramatic implications for healthcare, employment and migration in the future," he said. "Only nuclear power can stop this migration by helping to develop the region."
2019, November, 13, 12:25:00FRANCE'S NUCLEAR POWER DOWN 7.6%
EDF said total output since the start of the year stood at 317.3 TWh, down 1.3% compared with the same period a year ago.
2019, November, 1, 14:05:00ASIA'S NUCLEAR POWER BENEFITS
In 2018 a total of 533 TWh of electricity generated in Asia was from nuclear power. This was 12% higher than the previous year, and 60% higher than in 2012. Nuclear generation in Asia now represents 21% of total electricity generation.

Power of Siberia's linear part is thus ready for the commencement of Russian pipeline gas supplies to China.
2019, October, 28, 13:45:00NUCLEAR ENERGY BENEFITS FOR AFRICA
Speaking to African heads of state and representatives from Russian, African, and international business and government agencies, Rosatom Director General Alexey Likhachov yesterday emphasised the benefits of nuclear energy in job creation and regional economic development. At the Russia-Africa Summit in Sochi, Russia, Likhachov said global inequality in technological, industrial and socio-economic development was "acutely felt" in Africa.
2019, October, 25, 08:50:00CLEAN NUCLEAR POWER
Globally, nuclear power is a leading source of clean electricity today - second only to hydro - but many nuclear power plants in advanced economies are facing retirement as they approach the end of their original 40-year design lifetime, Birol said. Without additional lifetime extensions or new projects, nuclear capacity in advanced economies - primarily in the USA, the EU and Japan - would decline by two-thirds by 2040, substantially as a result of political issues and inadequate market design, he added.
2019, October, 23, 12:10:00NUCLEAR POWER FOR INDIA
Nuclear power for civil use is well-established in India. Since building two small boiling water reactors at Tarapur in the 1960s, its civil nuclear strategy has been directed towards complete independence in the nuclear fuel cycle, necessary because it is excluded from the 1970 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) due to it acquiring nuclear weapons capability after 1970. As a result, India's nuclear power programme has proceeded largely without fuel or technological assistance from other countries.
2019, October, 23, 12:05:00NUCLEAR POWER FOR CZECH
The Czech Republic has six nuclear reactors generating about one-third of its electricity. Four VVER-440 units are at Dukovany, in Vysočina Region, and two VVER-1000 units are at Temelín, in South Bohemian Region. The country is phasing out its coal-fired power plants and will need to increase the share of nuclear power if it is to remain self-sufficient in electricity supply.

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has announced an agreement to collaborate on the potential application of its BWRX-300 small modular reactor technology in Poland.
