ILa OIEA doce qie ima docena de países se equiparán con energía nuclear
November 29, 2023 - Se espera que una docena de países inicien la producción de electricidad con energía nuclear en pocos años, ha dicho el jefe de la OIEA Rafael Grossi.
According to International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) calculations, it is necessary to double the number of nuclear reactors in the world – currently at more than 400 units – to achieve the objectives of the Paris climate agreement, Grossi said on Tuesday at the World Nuclear Exhibition in Paris.
“We already have 10 countries which have entered the decision phase (to build nuclear power plants) and 17 others which are in the evaluation process,” he said.
“There will be a dozen or 13 (new) nuclear countries within a few years,” he added.
Ghana, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Namibia, the Philippines, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan were cited by Grossi as potential new nuclear countries, according to Reuters.
