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 1.5°C 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.

Keywords: climate warming; nuclear energy; carbon dioxide emissions; carbon capture and storage; bio energy; renewable energies.
