EU Nuclear Policy

Nuclear power stations currently produce around a third of the electricity and 15% of the energy consumed in the European Union (EU). The sector represents a source of energy with low carbon levels and relatively stable costs, which makes it attractive from the point of view of security of supply and fighting climate change.
It is up to each Member State, however, to decide whether or not to pursue the option of nuclear power. The UK has recently announced plans to develop a number of nuclear power stations. For more information see the links below:
