April 2016 - CherNObyl+30
members were active in several forums marking the Chernobyl nuclear
power plant's catastrophe that happened 30 years ago.
The message was to urge for transitions to sustainable energy immediately!
There is a radical change taking place in the energy sector towards renewable
energy and energy efficiency all over the world. The myth about "high
of green energy" is gone.
Rising numbers of countries are moving towards increasing the renewable shares
of their energy supplies. Even France, the leading "nuclear" state,
adopted the energy-transition law last year, which set to decrease the nuclear
share in the electricity mix down to 50% (from 75% today) by 2025.
In Minsk, Belarus, experts reviewed the progress made by the European and global
energy sectors during the past 30 years since the Chernobyl catastrophe, and
the likely development trends in the next 3 decades. They discussed ways in which
Belarus, one of the countries that were most affected by the Chernobyl disaster
and that still continue to suffer from its consequences, can make use of the
opportunities available today to move towards a sustainable energy model.
24 April, 2016: International Conference "Chernobyl

Network" with the support of the Kiev branch of Heinrich Boll Foundation
