UK: Nuclear part of the problem, not the solution to the energy challenge

“As the UK gears up for a crucial decision on the building of new nuclear power plants, the voices in support of nuclear energy are getting louder. They claim that climate change cannot be addressed without an expansion of nuclear capacity. Renewable energies are said to be too costly and immature. Actually, the reverse is true, argues Thiemo Gropp, Director of the Desertec Foundation. Nuclear power is too costly and immature. What the UK and Europe should be doing is investing in building a supergrid that can support the expansion of renewables.”
