It is refused by most of the environmentalists to accept the concept that nuclear power is a renewable form of energy because it releases harmful byproducts and depends on heavy industries that use fuel like Uranium.
Though many countries like France are motivated to build such industries that create no wastage and don’t harm environment by giving no or little greenhouse gases, but giving name to the nuclear power as renewable energy could help out the nuclear operators to gain benefit from the policies and obligations served as clean energies like wind, solar, and biomass.
Anyhow, the concept to make nuclear power as renewable energy has doubts in it. The recent statement appeared regarding opposition to nuclear power when the head of the International Renewable Energy Agency also known as ‘IRENA’ guarded 140 countries to on making conversion of energy, didn’t approved nuclear power as their favored technologies.
Helen Pelosse, interim director general of IRENA claimed that IRENA will not support any nuclear energy program because it’s too lengthy and has a lot of risks involve, the procession is complicated and creates a lot of wastes. She further added that solar power is far better substitute, they are not expensive and especially for those who are blessed with so many sun for solar plants.
