The most serious challenge facing us is a complete instability of electricity market in many countries. In this situation it is difficult to invest into future.
William D. Magwood IV
It is wrong to compare the sources of energy: the question is in the right balance, and atomic energy is a vital element of such balance.
Sergey Kirienko
The question is not what energy is better, the question is how we can reach the neutrality of emissions to decrease the impact of climate change.
Hakima El Haite
The most important challenge for atomic energy is the accumulation of waste products. In this respect, innovations mean the creation of a new production cycle permitting to use spent fuel as a source of fuel for a fast reactor.
