DOE must supply proof of affordability to advertise in this way

South African nonprofit environmental organisation Project 90 by 2030 has filed a complaint with the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) of South Africa against the Department ofEnergy’s (DoE’s) recent promotion of nuclear energy.

“The DoE statement that ‘nuclear power is a clean, safe, affordable and reliable source of energy’ printed on promotional materials, such as notebooks and water bottles, together with the department’s logo was not objectively substantiated with up-to-date and current documentary evidence, such as feasibility or affordability studies with relevance to the South African context,” Project 90 by 2030’s head of policy Robert Fischer said.
