A nuclear plant closes while a coal plant opens. That is hardly a welcome trade-off.
The Philippines wants to wean itself off coal-fired power plants even as it seeks to meet its growing energy needs.
The country wants to reduce its carbon footprint while ensuring a steady and ample supply of electricity.
India’s energy deficit and the success of the country’s climate action policies are important factors to consider in the push for greater commitment to the nuclear energy sector and international alliance building.
India will need plenty more electricity; it also needs that extra power to be generated in a cleaner, low-carbon fashion.
Considering the massive challenges ahead of us, nuclear power deserves a seat at the clean energy table.
