New EU rules governing state subsidies for nuclear

greens eu 150The European Commission is preparing to review the guidelines for state aid subsidies in the construction of new nuclear power stations.

Even though the Commission’s proposals will probably only be unveiled after the German Bundestag election on 22 September, the Greens have already obtained a draft version of the new rules. This draft text has been pre-decided by the EU commissioners for competition and energy – Joaquin Almunia and Günther Oettinger. It provides for limitations on the promotion of renewable energies and paves the way for subsidies for the construction of new nuclear power stations.
