German utilities call for life extensions

24 September 2008

Germany’s nuclear power operators are proposing their government abandons its 15-year phaseout of plants and instead keep them operating for at least 25 years. RWE, E.ON and Vattenfall say the additional profits they would generate could be ploughed back into clean energy research or subsidise German domestic energy bills. RWE estimates 25 more years of nuclear power in Germany could generate €3000 per German citizen.
