Nuclear Energy and the Green Transition

Sectors & Issues
August 16 2021 - Arthur Kearney, Researcher

For decades, nuclear energy has occupied an uneasy and deeply politicised position in energy policy frameworks, and has often been shunned by investors.

In light of ever more ambitious climate targets and the announcement of the EU Joint Research Centre’s Assessment of Nuclear Energy as a clean and safe alternative, EU policymakers are widely expected to label nuclear energy a green investment under the EUs green finance Taxonomy. Its potential implications could signal a defining shift in the role of nuclear energy in investment frameworks, and therefore the green transition more broadly.




Our report evaluates the potential role of nuclear energy in the green transition from the perspective of environmentally concerned investors, and in particular, those wishing to offer tangible support to Sustainable Development Goal 13 on Climate Action.
