OECD - Nuclear Energy in Perspective

The OECD has released an informative nuclear energy summary, Nuclear Energy and Addressing Climate Change. The document is only 8 pages (with figures and tables), but it efficiently addresses the following questions:

  • Does nuclear power produce CO2 emissions?

  • To what extent is nuclear energy used now?

  • Can nuclear power capacity be expanded quickly?

  • Are supplies of nuclear fuel adequate?

  • What about safety, waste and proliferation concerns?
