Facts on Alternatives

Benefits of Renewables versus Nuclear

In nuclear participation procedures like transboundary Environmental Impact Assessments for new nuclear power plants nuclear authorities and regulators use arguments on benefits of nuclear energy like its good potential for job creation, its little risk, its low independence from foreign states, its favourable ecological balance etc. For the most communities at the nuclear site and the public these detailed arguments are not easy to refute on the spot. Thus, an "Argumentarium" will be developed to present scientifically based arguments for easy use in these participation procedures.
