World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2022

#EnergyCrisis, Nuclear Renaissance? There are many plans but little implementation, long construction periods, rising costs, plus growing technical problems in existing nuclear plants. The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2022 (WNISR2022) reviews nuclear power plant data, including information on operation, production, construction, and decommissioning, and compares the development of nuclear power and renewable energy globally.

"WNISRs are vital reality checks of the nuclear industry’s performance. Every yearly report is a barrier against utopian fantasies and wishful thinking, a tool to connect with reality." -- Prof. Aviel Verbruggen

The Feasibility and Future of Japan's Climate Policy

E-paper

Japan has set an ambitious target of attaining carbon neutrality by 2050. However, the government seems unwilling to abandon nuclear and fossil-fuel options, alongside with prolonged recession, many view climate change as a preoccupation of the elite rather than a pressing issue. To give substance to climate policy, the climate movement needs to be galvanised, to better inform the public and challenge the ruling party to implement its promises.

Coal Atlas (Korean)

Coal Atlas 석탄 아틀라스

The atlas provides insights on how turning away from fossil (and nuclear) fuels towards renewable energy can offer huge economic and social opportunities.
