The International Energy Agency (IEA) in its latest World Energy Outlook (WEO), published on 13 October, says transition to a clean energy system is progressing too slowly for the world to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. However, the report provides analysis of how the world can still move towards a pathway that would have a good chance of limiting global warming to 1.5°C but sees no key role for nuclear power.

President says Europe ‘will never have’ enough renewable energy capacity Mr Macron said France’s nuclear plants are a major asset for producing clean hydrogen. Courtesy Elysée Palace. French president Emmanuel Macron said that by 2030 France must be a leader in carbon-free power production with one small modular reactor in operation and nuclear plants used to produce clean hydrogen through electrolysis.

Mr Macron said Europe will never have enough renewable energy capacity to produce sufficient green hydrogen and that France’s nuclear plants are a major asset for producing green hydrogen.

Mr Macron made the comments as he unveiled a five-year investment plan on Tuesday aimed at fostering industrial champions and innovation.

“We must wage the battle of innovation and industrialisation at the same time,” the French president told a gathering of business leaders and young entrepreneurs, unveiling plans to invest €30bn to “re-industrialise” the country.
