Earth Day 2012: AREVA’s Technology Creating a Cleaner Environment
It’s a simple idea: More power, less carbon emissions.
- One AREVA solar thermal booster attached to a coal-fired power plant will reduce emissions by 36,000 tons of carbon every year.
- A single, modern AREVA EPR nuclear power facility will generate massive amounts of electricity 24/7 without a single carbon emission, and does so for three generations.
- One AREVA offshore wind turbine catching the wind 30 miles offshore will power 5,000 homes.
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.
