Environment Minister Eamon Ryan has been urged to authorise a study on the possibility of harnessing nuclear power to help Ireland meet its emissions targets over the coming decades. The 18for0 nuclear power lobby group, comprised of professionals in energy and related fields, said it had contacted Mr Ryan to enquire as to whether the Government plans “to conduct or commission a study to consider the potential of nuclear energy to benefit Irish society after 2030”. The group said its own study indicated that Ireland is capable of developing a nuclear power programme that would “provide cheaper energy than alternative proposals, reduce carbon emissions faster, and enable a just transition for hundreds of energy workers”.
