La géopolitique de l’après-COP21 : de nouvelles opportunités pour les entreprises / Jean-Marie Chevalier, L’Observatoire Energies d’Entreprises, 7/06/2016

Avant Paris, la géopolitique du climat opposait les pays riches, responsables de la pollution actuelle, et les pays en développement qui souhaitaient que les pays riches fassent de gros efforts et qu’ils aident, financièrement et technologiquement, les pays pauvres à se développer de façon plus durable.

The story made a splash because the power from the floating reactors would most likely be used to accelerate construction of oil rigs and artificial islands in the South China Sea—already a source of border disputes and escalating tension between China and its neighbors… lire

Is US Climate Policy Killing Nuclear Power? / James Bushnell. Energy Institute at Haas blog, 31/05/2016

These are strange times for competitive power markets in the United States.  Baseload power plants, many of them nuclear, are reportedly struggling to stay out of the red. About 10 years ago, plants like these were thriving with high wholesale prices set by (then) high natural gas prices… lire
