The return of nuclear energy to the spotlight is significant and deep-rooted. First and foremost, we are undergoing an energy crisis at a time of geopolitical upheaval, which makes energy sovereignty a strategic imperative. France, which has chosen nuclear energy, produces over 50% of its energy domestically. This is a major advantage.
And there is of course the fight against climate change. By helping to produce safe, low-carbon electricity at a competitive cost, nuclear energy is one of the solutions for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. We are witnessing the start of a new era in which electricity will play an ever-increasing role in our daily lives, gradually replacing fossil fuels. To meet the challenges of this expansion, our country has a robust electricity grid, low-carbon production resources and leading energy operators.
