About 18for0

18for0 is a clean energy advocacy group of voluntary professionals with over 150 years of combined experience in the energy industry. We are concerned about the credibility of current proposals to achieve net zero emissions in Ireland by 2050. Our name derives from our assessment that introducing 18 % nuclear energy into a power system dominated by renewables would be an effective way to reduce power sector emissions to their minimum.

Organiser 18for0 - Advocating for clean energy

Organiser of Does Ireland have the skills to run a nuclear power programme?

18 for 0 , an Irish charity consisting of professionals in a variety of relevant fields, is concerned about the credibility of current proposals to achieve net zero emissions in Ireland by 2050.

We aim to present the environmental and economic case for modern nuclear energy to a wider Irish audience and to outline Ireland’s capability to operate a robust nuclear power programme.

Our research indicates that Ireland must implement a wider range of options than is outlined in the current Climate Action Plan in order to achieve the required carbon emissions reductions in an affordable and environmentally responsible manner that also retains stability and security in the electricity grid.
