Hungary joins declaration on tripling nuclear capacity

Hungary joined the Declaration to Triple Nuclear Energy at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai on Saturday.

The 22 signatory countries have pledged to triple global nuclear energy capacity by 2050. The declaration was initiated by French president Emmanuel Macron, the state secretary for energy and climate policy, Attila Steiner, said in a statement.

Steiner said the aim was to further increase nuclear capacity as nuclear energy was an important source of carbon-free energy production.

More than 80,000 delegates, including 140 heads of state and government, are attending the COP28 conference.
