Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm reading more and more the last year or so, that nuclear power is going to expand dramatically to meet the needs for power generation for homes and offices.  I had not realized how much power is nuclear today--78% of power provided by nuclear plants in France, 20% in the US.  I just didn't realize it was that big.  And many people make the point that it has been extremely safe--though I don't think the issue of disposal of spent rods has been adequately addressed, and of course that is a huge issue.

Transportation seems to be the problem, in the sense that their is no clear, it works now, kind of solution to replace oil.
