The European Commission released a plan for rejuvenating Europe’s pandemic-damaged economy, including a green energy program that calls for “rolling out renewable energy projects, especially wind [and] solar, and kick-starting a clean hydrogen economy.” No mention was made of nuclear energy, however, an omission for which the commission was taken to task that same day by Foratom, the Brussels-based trade association for the European nuclear energy industry.

More on the commission’s recovery plan, issued on May 27, can be found at Europe's moment: Repair and prepare for the next generation, with Foratom’s response available at FORATOM highlights importance of clean, dispatchable and European energy to EU’s recovery.
