EDF backs nuclear power to combat climate change; sees wind power's role limited  

EDF chief executive officer Pierre Gadonneix backed greater use of nuclear power as a way of combating climate change, saying that politicians must be more active in making it acceptable to public opinion, which remains the main obstacle.

He said the contribution of wind power to limiting CO2 emissions would remain small.

Nuclear power makes up nearly 80 pct of EDF’s power production. The company has an interest in wind power projects through its renewable energy unit, EDF Energies Nouvelles.
