Analyzing the Impact of Nuclear Power on CO2 Emissions
AbstractThis study investigates the relationship between the nuclear power proportion and CO2 emissions per capita using the panel dynamic ordinary least square method. The panel datasets consist of 18 countries covering 95% of the global nuclear reactors. The results indicate that a long-term 1% increase in nuclear power led to a 0.26–0.32% decrease in CO2 emissions per capita. Additionally, in France, Germany, and Switzerland they demonstrate the existence of the environmental Kuznets curve—an inverted U-shaped relationship between environmental pollution and income per capita.
