    France's President, Francois Hollande is hosting a green energy summit on how to ween the country off nuclear energy.

    Atomic power currently accounts for 75 per cent of France's energy output. But in a campaign pledge before the elections, Francois Hollande promised to reduce that to 50 per cent by 2025.

    The ambitious target has many people questioning whether the country can do it.
