GDF Suez moves forward with nuclear energy plans

One of the top European energy firms has indicated that it is inching towards making a major investment in nuclear power.

According to Gerard Mestrallet, the head of utility firm GDF Suez, it is one of a number of companies bidding to build a new nuclear energy plant in the UK.

The British government has already given the project the green light to move on to the next phase.

Speaking to the London Evening Standard, he said: "We want to be the single energy provider to our customers, fulfilling all their energy needs, so we're one-third electricity, one-third natural gas and one-third other forms of energy and environmental services."

Mr Mestrallet added that decisions need to be made to see what the future holds for a European energy strategy.

Speaking at the European Future Energy Forum in London recently, David Howell, the British Commonwealth minister, said a European energy strategy will not happen, Time magazine reported.
