In March 2021, France has joined the NICE Future (Nuclear Innovation: Clean Energy Future) international initiative, where it will be represented by the General Directorate for Energy and Climate of the Ministry of Ecological Transition. CEA will bring its expertise.
CEA welcomes France joining the NICE Future initiative. Alongside other French actors of the decarbonized energy sector, it will contribute to the initiative’s objectives, which are perfectly aligned with its missions. CEA will bring its expertise on nuclear energy and innovation as well as an integrated approach of the energy system.
Created in 2018 by the United States, Canada and Japan, the NICE Future initiative aims at evaluating what nuclear energy can bring to the decarbonized energy systems of the future, comprising an increasing share of renewables. Its goal is to foster a dialog about the role nuclear energy could play in accelerating the worldwide energy transition as a dispatchable, resilient and clean energy source, able to provide power as well as heat. The initiative is a forum where the optimal role of the various components of a decarbonized energy mix can be studied, and complementarities between technologies, their possible interactions, their potential, and the developments that are still required, can be debated.
