EU Lacks Common Nuclear Policy
From Press TV
This way, EU countries like Austria don’t have a single nuclear plant – while others, like France, derive nearly 80% of their energy from nuclear power. In Bulgaria – this share is over 35%, and demand is growing. But the ruling conservative party has made a controversial decision to abandon the construction of new reactors due to price concerns.
In EU alone, this is an industry worth some 70 billion euros annually – which maintains about 900 000 jobs, says the head of the European Atomic Forum, or FORATOM – the largest trade association for the nuclear industry in Europe.
