JRC research on nuclear energy aims to achieve a viable and diverse energy mix, limit CO2 emissions, maintain security of energy supply and energy independence, and promote economic development and employment. Nuclear power contributes more than 25% to the current electricity generation. A significant number of EU Member States rely on nuclear power in their national energy mix, as part of a long-term strategic energy infrastructure.
