French newspaper “Le Figaro” reported that French President Emmanuel Macron would like to announce before Christmas the construction of six new nuclear reactors in the country running on pressurized water.

The newspaper pointed out on Monday that the sharp rise in natural gas prices in Europe and the impact on household energy spending six months before the French presidential elections had a significant impact on the decision to build new reactors.

A French presidential spokesman declined to comment.

“Le Figaro” quoted an unnamed senior government official as saying that “the energy crisis shows that we are right in choosing nuclear energy in our endeavor to switch to environmentally friendly sources of energy.”

President Macron had pledged at the beginning of his presidency to reduce the reliance on nuclear reactors in energy production from 75% to 50% by 2035.
