We must not underestimate the importance of having a global regulating organisation that is up to the task.” He said that nuclear power was key to meeting the low-carbon objectives set by COP21 and that its part in the global energy mix must   Emmanuel Macron, the French Minister of the Economy, Industry and Digital Technology, addressing industry professionals, praised the “dynamism of the sector”, and confirmed that “nuclear power, far from being confined to the past, is very definitely an option that addresses the challenges of the 21st century, first because nuclear power has a significant impact on employment - (…) accounting for 220,000 highly skilled jobs, almost 2,600 companies and some €50 billion in revenues (…). And lastly, it is also at the centre of environmental and climate issues because it makes decarbonized electricity generation possible in France.” Fruitful panel discussions WNE 2016 offered 11 panel discussions (against 6 in 2014) chaired by WNE’s Platinum (Areva, EDF, Assystem, Engie), Gold (Boccard, CNNC, CGN, Rosatom, Westinghouse) and institutional partners (Andra, CEA), bringing together leading figures from the civil nuclear industry to discuss topics on the main theme of the 2016 edition, “Nuclear industry in the energy mix”.
