Le Figaro: Macron wants to build six new nuclear power plants | Abroad


At the beginning of his presidency, Macron promised to reduce the country’s dependence on nuclear energy. But the energy crisis has changed the mood in Paris. “The energy crisis shows that we are right to choose nuclear for our green energy transition,” Le Figaro quoted an unnamed senior government official as saying.

Earlier, the government had said it would not start any new EPR reactor projects until French energy company EDF completes construction of an EPR nuclear power plant in Flamanville, northwestern France. Flamanville has been dealing with delays and huge cost overruns for a decade, and ministers are still undecided about when the plant will be operational.
