Director General Huttunen: Nuclear power has a long-lasting role as climate-friendly baseload power substituting fossil fuels

5.2.2019 11.55
– Nuclear power has a long-lasting role as climate-friendly baseload power as fossil fuels need to be replaced quickly in emission-free ways to generate energy. This role will be emphasized in the coming years and decades, when global greenhouse gas emissions will have to be dramatically reduced in order to halt climate change, says Riku Huttunen, Director General of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, in his opening speech at the Nordic Nuclear Forum conference to be held for the first time in Helsinki on 5 February 2019.
