Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy
Environmentalists for Nuclear Energy (EFN) is a pro-nuclear power non-profit organization which aims at :
- providing complete and straightforward information to the public on energy and the environment
- promoting the benefits of nuclear energy for a cleaner world
- uniting people in favor of clean nuclear energy
The website of the organization (ecolo.org) states that environmental opposition to nuclear energy is the "greatest misunderstanding and mistake of the century".
EFN now gathers over 10,000 members and supporters, with local correspondents and a network of affiliated organizations and in more than 60 countries, to inform the public on energy and the environment.
The general assembly of EFN is held once a year in Houilles.
The headquarters of EFN are located in a positive energy eco-house in the suburbs of Paris, requiring very little energy, powered with solar energy (thermal and PV), wind energy, geothermal air-conditioning, a high efficiency heat-pump, double-flux ventilation, and just a small amount of low-carbon-emitting French nuclear energy. Conceptually designed by members of the organization, this house has an almost-nil carbon-footprint (500 times less than a standard gas-heated construction of the same size).
