Germany’s nuclear decision: Hold the confetti for now
For the few members of the nuclear community who haven’t already been made aware, the Wall Street Journal yesterday published a story headlined “Germany to Keep Last Three Nuclear Power Plants Running in Policy U-Turn.” According to the WSJ, the German government plans to postpone retirement of the plants—all of which had been slated for closure by the end of 2022—fearing an inadequate energy supply this winter.
The Nuclear Energy Institute is the policy organization of the nuclear technologies industry, based in Washington, D.C.
NEI's mission is to promote the use and growth of nuclear energy through efficient operations and effective policy.
NEI accomplishes this by providing a unified industry voice before Congress, the executive branch, state, and local legislatures, and federal regulators, as well as international organizations and venues, on key policy issues.
NEI's members include companies that own or operate nuclear power plants, reactor designers and advanced technology companies, architect and engineering firms, fuel suppliers and service companies, consulting services and manufacturing companies, companies involved in nuclear medicine and nuclear industrial applications, radionuclide and radiopharmaceutical companies, universities and research laboratories, law firms, labor unions, and international electric utilities.
