Earth Day 2012: AREVA’s Technology Creating a Cleaner Environment

 

It’s a simple idea: More power, less carbon emissions.

For example:

Where your power comes from makes a difference in our world today, and tomorrow.

By learning more about our nation’s energy choices, we can make informed decisions to meet our increasing power needs without increasing our environmental risk.

We Americans can replace our current carbon-based energy supply with an intentional mix of nuclear and renewable low carbon energies, and achieve a cleaner environment.

That’s where we come in—AREVA’s portfolio of innovative large-scale, low carbon power technologies are under construction around the world, generating thousands of jobs and megawatts of power.

Learn more. Explore our clean energy technologies. Be ready for your next conversation about our nation’s energy options. And join into the conversation on this blog.

Together we can make a simple idea a national reality. Enjoy Earth Day weekend, and join in the global celebration.

    I still wonder why Areva is offering the distracting message that solar and wind are even on the same scale as nuclear when it comes to producing MORE power without carbon emissions.

    A simple graph comparing the three solutions mentioned in this post would expose the reality – nuclear does not need wind and solar energy. It is capable of making a huge dent in CO2 emissions all by itself.

    Rod, we agree that nuclear energy “is capable of making a huge dent in CO2 emissions all by itself” and should be the primary foundation for our nation’s reliable, 24/7 on-demand low carbon energy. 

    But with multiple low carbon energy sources available, like renewables, we should continue with a multi-source low carbon energy policy to quickly replace our carbon-based energy structure and ensure a diversified energy supply. 

    Nuclear energy’s combination of small geo-footprint, steady massive energy output, and thousands of regional long-term jobs with every project cannot be matched by any renewable. But renewables have their own benefits and unique applications that make them a worthwhile part of an energy policy achieving short- and long-term impacts.
