Role of Nuclear Energy with Particular References to Western Europe


The role played by nuclear energy in meeting the electric energy requirements of a country or of a group of countries such as Western Europe is to be considered with reference to the overall energy situation. Western Europe consists mainly of countries that have achieved a high degree of industrialization basedprevailingly on conversion processes and therefore characterized by high energy consumption; on the other hand, the resources of primary energy sources are somewhat lacking, as in most of the European countries.
