According to the assessment of the World Nuclear Association (WNA) and the IEA Agency for the implementation of the Paris Agreement (limiting global warming to only two degrees Celsius before 2050), the world needs to put into operation 1000 GW of nuclear power capacity for the period (until 2050). This will require the connection to the network of up to 35 new nuclear power units per year (now only 10-15 power units per year are connected). Atoms have even come up with their name for "green energy". This is nuclear energy plus renewable energy sources.
Such projects as the Southern Gas Corridor and the Eastern Mediterranean Gas will enable Europe to diversify its energy sources, thereby improving its energy security, said the US Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson.
