The IEA in a report released in France on Thursday says the debate about the Energy transition due to climate change concerns as well as the soaring energy prices have seen a comeback of nuclear in countries where it was being abandoned due to costs and safety concerns.
A survey of potential sites for nuclear power development was conducted by the Siting Working Group SWG comprising of experts from different Ministries and Departments. The results of the survey recommended areas around the Kyoga, Katonga and Aswa regions as the most suitable potential sites for nuclear stations and substations.
The latest development that comes as governments meet at the UN Climate Change Conference in Warsaw Poland has not gone unnoticed. Some protestors outside the conference urged Uganda and other countries not to go into nuclear as a form of Energy.
