Macron pushes nuclear, hydrogen power in 30 billion plan to reverse industrial decline

Source: France 24

President Emmanuel Macron said France would aim to become a leader in green hydrogen by 2030 and build new, smaller nuclear reactors as he unveiled a five-year investment plan on Tuesday aimed at fostering industrial champions and innovation.

"We must wage the battle of innovation and industrialisation at the same time," the French president told a gathering of business leaders and young entrepreneurs, unveiling plans to invest €30 billion ($35 billion) to "re-industrialise" the country.

Macron was speaking six months ahead of France's presidential election, in which he is expected to seek a second five-year term at the Elysée Palace.

Setting out some of the plan's targets, Macron said France would build a low-carbon plane, a small modular reactor as well as two megafactories for the production of green hydrogen – all by the end of the decade. It would also produce large numbers of electric vehicles.

3. We need a dramatic expansion of nuclear power in order to combat climate change.

I hope more countries, and especially the United States, will embrace nuclear energy.

4. Nuclear energy is the only way to meet our 30 year carbon goals.

I’m all in favor of wind and solar, but they are not going to get the job done.

5. Fusion would be great, and we might be close. Also I have hope for molten salt (thorium) reactors.

Can't hardly wait.
