Nuclear power offers a reliable way to generate energy with the lowest emissions.
The greenhouse gas emissions from nuclear power throughout its life cycle are at the same level as wind power, and approximately one hundredth of the emissions from coal power. The energy density of uranium is more than a million times higher than that of fossil fuels, which means that very little waste is produced. The waste that is produced, on the other hand, is stored and processed with a lot more care than the hazardous waste from other energy sources. Nuclear energy is cleantech at its cleanest.
