Abstract

A rapid development of nuclear energy production reaching 173 EJ/y in 2060 and 605 EJ/y in 2110 limits the Global Mean Surface Temperature (GMST) increase to 1.5C with respect to preindustrial value, with a reduction of the stored carbon dioxide from 800 Gt in the original MESSAGE-Efficiency scenario to 275 Gt in the present one, while multiplying by 6 the Total Primary Energy Supply between 2015 and 2110.
