Europe on its way to becoming a major player in the construction and development of new nuclear power plants:

With a declaration of intent by 25 countries to triple global nuclear power capacity, nuclear power has made its first prominent appearance as a technology in terms of climate policy at a Conference of the Parties (COP) to the Framework Convention on Climate Change. This highly visible step was preceded by an increasingly dynamic reassessment of nuclear power in many countries, particularly in Europe. The European development, including the decision to include nuclear energy in the taxonomy regulation of climate-friendly technologies within the framework of financial market regulation, probably even caused the difference between earlier climate conferences and COP28 in the United Arab Emirates, despite the US initiative. Despite the activities of the USA, China and Russia, the visible shift in sentiment there in favour of nuclear energy was largely due to the repositioning of many European countries on nuclear energy in the context of climate policy, energy security and strategic energy independence. Due to this striking development, the article will present the current status of European nuclear power programmes.
