Nuclear Energy, mainly those used to produce electricity, generate around a third of the electricity consumed in the European Union. In the coming years, nuclear power could potentially play an important role in reducing CO2 emissions, while ensuring reliable and affordable energy supplies. In other words, contribute to an EU’s carbon-free electricity.
The core principle and responsibility of the nuclear industry is to guarantee its safety. For this reason, CEN and CENELEC in close collaboration with the international standardization organizations, ISO and IEC, are working on the development and publication of standards that ensure the safety, environmental and technical requirements of the European nuclear energy industry.
