18for0 Objective

We want all forms of electricity production to be considered in order to achieve net zero emissions in the Irish electricity system. 

We are calling for this to be achieved by:

  • Removing the barriers to scientifically assessing nuclear energy for its role in the Irish energy mix, which includes the legal barriers to nuclear power development in Ireland

  • Assessing all technology options, at the scales they may be deployed, for their viability in helping Ireland decarbonize the electricity mix

  • Conducting scientific, technology-neutral models into the pathways to reach net zero emissions in the electricity system by 2050

  • Basing the roadmap to net zero off these pathways in combination with the assessments
