What Types Of Energy For The 21st Century?

EffiText addresses technical and economical issues reflecting the priorities of  major actors in energy and renewables: ANDRA (France National Radioactive Waste Management Agency), AREVA, CEA (France Atomic Agency), EDF, GDF SUEZ (ENGIE), IRSN (Nuclear Safety and Radioprotection Institute). Through reports, field surveys, analyses and interviews, we have written in particular on:

  1. R&D trends in the nuclear (waste management, nuclear power plants ageing, safety, GEN IV, ITER…)

  2. Energy challenges in fast growing economies

  3. Political and strategic dimensions of supplies management and securing, infrastructures, grid operation and management (electricity transmission and distribution, gas and oil pipelines, legislation…)

  4. Primary energy sources management and exploitation

  5. Global warming

  6. Ways of improvement for energy efficiency

  7. Assets and constraints of renewables



  1. • Writing For Technologies

> FOCUS – EffiText has been contributing to Alternatives, a quarterly published by AREVA, by opening up the field of knowledge and reflection on energies for the 21st century through an inclusive and rigorous approach. Today’s and future technologies are reviewed with detailed testimonies of experts and representatives of civil society.

EffiText has written annual reports for CEA (France Atomic Agency), ANDRA (France National Radioactive Waste Management Agency, Gaz de France.

While the urgency of “decarbonizing” human activities – particularly energy production – is gaining momentum, global demand for energy continues to rise.

The complementarity between nuclear, wind,

solar, hydro and biomass is starting to be seen as an obvious necessity.

A closer look.
