KUWAIT, Oct 7 (KUNA) -- Kuwait has begun its role, amid a unified GCC framework, a critical research and study phase for the execution of a joint nuclear energy and water desalination project, said a Ministry of Electricity and Water official on Sunday.
Plans on revising the project are going forward steadily and according to well thought-out extensive research, in order to ensure no mistakes occur while implementing the project, said the ministry's Assistant Undersecretary for Training and Planning Mishaan Al-Otaibi, speaking at the launch of a training course on the role of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in energy planning.
The official added that demand for energy through traditional sources reamains vital for development projects, noting that the increasing demand for alternative energy sources, namely nuclear energy, comes with a heavy financial burden on the country's resources, including environmental hazards that require planning and efficient development.
Al-Otaibi added that a promising future would be diversifying energy resources that include renewable and alternative energy sources, noting that nuclear energy is considered one of these main future energy sources if we took under consideration all safety precautions to ensure security and safety from radiation.
