The world is facing a climate crisis of historic proportions. Atmospheric warming caused by unprecedented carbon emissions is the main culprit.
“The transition to clean energy is happening worldwide and it’s unstoppable. It’s not a question of ‘if’, it’s just a matter of ‘how soon’ – and the sooner the better for all of us.”
The damaging effects of climate change are incontrovertible. Extreme heat waves and drought; raging wildfires; violent, unprecedented storms; and rising sea levels; all threaten the planet’s ecological balance and our social and economic infrastructure as we know it. With deleterious climate shift impact only expected to increase, we must take rapid action today to curb carbon emissions on a global scale.
As part of a historic opportunity, governments and corporations around the world are mobilizing to pursue and implement a singular climate ambition of net-zero emissions by 2050.
Prodigy TNPPs will help to achieve this goal.
Nuclear power generates safe, zero-emissions, low-cost and uninterrupted electricity and heat. Widespread adoption will complement renewables and radically reduce global reliance on fossil fuels.
“Globally, 733 million people still have no access to electricity, and 2.4 billion people still cook using fuels detrimental to their health and the environment. At the current rate of progress, 670 million people will remain without electricity by 2030”
Energy security is fundamental to food production, safe drinking water, healthcare, education, infrastructure, technology, economic productivity, social equity, and improved living standards. By deploying Prodigy’s TNPPs, we will increase global access to clean, affordable and reliable energy, the bedrock of a sustainable future.
In addition to addressing Goal 13, Climate Action, Prodigy TNPPs will tackle:
Goal 7: Expanding access to carbon-free, and lower-cost energy all over the world, including to on-grid and off-grid locations in Developed Countries, Developing Countries, Small Island Developing States, and Least Developed Countries.
Goal 9: Building resilient clean energy infrastructure and enabling sustainable industrialization practices across major sectors, including mining and transportation.
