In February, 40 countries came together on accelerating global action on clean energy and energy security @IEA Ministerial meeting in Paris. As vice-chair of #IEA ministerial I had plenty of bilateral meetings with US government, American companies and institutions. /1

Did you explained them that, because you are ignoring the citizens, every of the beautiful projects planned in Belgian offshore will fail ? @revolht #Ventilus #BoucleDuHainaut

‘This underlines the important role nuclear power can play in CLEAN energy transitions’ This is the view of IEA on nuclear energy, the complete opposite of yours…
Nuclear power has avoided about 55 Gt of CO2 emissions over the past 50 years, nearly equal to 2 years of global energy-related CO2 emissions. This underlines the important role nuclear power can play in clean energy transitions. → iea.li/2wcRcR2

It was such a pleasure to meet you and discuss Belgium’s ambitious energy plans!
