Abstract

This paper will discuss the environmental and economic possibilities of nuclear energy. Under the great international tension created by Ukraine and the Russian War, energy dependence on Russia is becoming a major concern for the European Union. The dependence on energy sources from other countries is an underlying danger to one's own nation's political and Economic health. Nuclear energy, as one of the clean energy sources that can satisfy a nation's requirements both in quality and quantity, is an energy source full of controversy, due to its potential to cause devastating nuclear emissions. Through a literature search and reading, this paper would come to the conclusion that all countries that wish to operate nuclear power plants should operate them like France.

Keywords

nuclear energy, sustainability; economic independence
