The article discusses the nuclear power plant program of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), noting a March 2013 license application by the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (Enec) to construct nuclear reactors in western UAE. The country hopes to increase nuclear power capacity in order to address rising demand for electricity, while also conserving energy resources and mitigating carbon emissions. Also reviewed are financing challenges for the nuclear power initiative.
