EU’s Oettinger: German nuclear deal is fair

first_img European Union energy commissioner Gunether Oettinger yesterday welcomed Germany’s nuclear energy move made by the government on Sunday, saying plans to grant nuclear plants longer life cycles tied in with wider energy plans for the bloc.Talking to reporters at an energy conference in Munich, he said: “The EU wants to lay down a focus for the next 10 years of energy policy in the winter and Germany’s decision fits in exactly at the right time.”The compromise between chancellor Angela Merkel, utilities and many other stakeholders was “fair”, he said. “I am also pleased that additional funds for renewables will be brought in as part of the provisions.” Burdens from the deal for utilities in the shape of a fuel tax and funds that they have to provide to the promotion of renewable energies, would probably be shouldered. “I am certain everyone’s done their sums and it was correctly measured.”Oettinger also said he was convinced the plan would stand up to possible challenges in constitutional courts. The EU Commission was planning soon to get directives on the way that would aim to solve nuclear waste repository issues, he added. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ EU’s Oettinger: German nuclear deal is fair whatsapp Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’Sportsnaut’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proofcenter_img Share by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy Fan KCS-content Tags: NULL Monday 6 September 2010 8:17 pmlast_img
