Finland warned over new nuclear assumptions

1 May 2007

The newly elected Prime Minister of Finland, Matti Vanhanen, has warned developers not to assume that the government will approve requests for more nuclear reactors.

The leader of a cross-party alliance government, which includes the Greens, has said that companies should not take it for granted that such requests will be approved, although the government would stand by an existing energy policy which does not rule out nuclear.

Vanhanen said that the government also wants to look at ways to increase the share of renewable energy in Finland's generation mix.
