APAC Energy Buzz: Nuclear – the cleanest dirty word

Report summary

China, Japan and South Korea have all announced carbon neutral goals. This is critical to global action on climate change: China alone contributes almost a third of global carbon emissions and Japan and South Korea around 3% and 2% respectively. If this is to be achieved, then future levels of investment in wind and solar will be astronomical. But will renewables alone be enough? Maligned, misunderstood and often feared, nuclear will have to play a significantly bigger role if Northeast Asia’s economic giants are to achieve carbon neutrality.
