Nuclear industry seen emerging from Fukushima shock | EurActiv

The comeback of nuclear energy and fossil fuels as well as hard times for solar energy and technologies such as carbon capture and storage (CCS) were the highlights of a conference organised by the French Institute for International Relations (IFRI) which took place yesterday in Brussels (16 February) [more about the event].

Philip Lowe, European Commission Director General for Energy, said the Fukushima nuclear disaster had in fact led to "significant decisions" only in one country, Germany.

Read, on; Mr. Director General for Energy doesn't even pretend to be impartial, and even lies (for example when claiming that Germany turned a net importer, although it remained a net exporter). Meanwhile, back in the real world, in Germany, the federal grid agency just sent a warning to 900 electricity traders in which it accused the traders of Enron-style specualtive tricks which, by holding back capacity, brought the system on the verge of blackouts in early February.
