On July 5 and 6, the Voices of Nuclear demonstrated in Strasbourg to support the final vote of the European Parliament which validated the integration of nuclear energy in the EU taxonomy for sustainable activities. We use it as the opportunity to look back at the saga of taxonomy, and to the long-term contribution of…

The exemptions granted to 4 nuclear power plants (out of 18) for their thermal discharges, in the current context of heat wave, generate a lot of comments. Let us recall, once again, that these discharge temperature and upstream-downstream temperature constraints (which concern all thermal power plants) aim to protect ecosystems, and essentially impact the electricity…

“That is why we [operator of the Isar nuclear power plant] have proposed to the [German] federal government to operate the Isar 2 unit for longer, beyond the December 31, 2022, if the government wishes. » “We don’t need new fuel assemblies.

The European Parliament rejected the motion to oppose the Delegated Act to the Taxonomy.

An article in the local press announcing our demonstration in Strasbourg in favour of the inclusion of nuclear power in the EU’s green taxonomy. An extract from the words of our spokesman Louis Thomas: “Louis Thomas, spokesman for the association “Voices of Nuclear”, expresses his regret to see the two energies, gas and nuclear, combined…

As surprising as it may seem, this congress which brings together many players in the nuclear industry (sector professionals, academics, young researchers and graduates, civil servants in the field of regulation, monitoring and waste management) takes makes sense so that elsewhere in Europe (and who knows maybe one day again in Germany) and around the…

Historic moment in the evolution of the global environmental movement: at its national congress, the Finnish Green Party voted to adopt a resolutely pro-nuclear position in its programmatic platform. The party manifesto now affirms that nuclear is a “sustainable energy”, and calls for the reform of current energy legislation to streamline the approval process for…
