Abstract

A robust energy mix is a feasible system which is least sensitive to uncertainties and undesirable developments. Increased energy efficiency and more benign energy forms are obviously elements of a preferable energy mix but they alone cannot constitute a robust energy policy. A wide window is left for nuclear fission to contribute towards meeting the world's energy needs before these benign energy technologies will be in place, whatever they turn out to be.
