The amount of nuclear used in the provision of cheap energy will be different for each country, the World Energy Council has stated.
Stuart Neil, director of communications at the organisation, noted that while the UK currently uses around 15 per cent nuclear in its total energy mix, nations such as France use nuclear as the main source of power.
"Each country is going to be different in its energy mix going forward; politically, some will find it more expedient to use nuclear and others won't.
"We call for a broad mix of energy, [and] just making sure it's being used efficiently," he explained.
Mr Neil pointed out that energy efficiency is one of the best ways to reduce demand for cheap gas and electricity, while making generating plants more efficient can even increase the amount of energy provided.
His comments come after the Japanese prime minister announced the country will reconsider its energy strategy in the wake of the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown.
