Greenpeace Challenges British Nuclear Plant’s Aid in Court

Greenpeace Challenges British Nuclear Plant’s Aid in Court

The European Commission recently approved nuclear power plant in Britain. Renewable energy corporations based in Germany and Austria will challenge the government funding for the project in court along with international environmental body Greenpeace. European Court of Justice based in Luxembourg is expected to hear the case soon. The proposed plant would be located some the South west England and will be called the Hinkley Point C project.
The billions of Euros are being awarded to nuclear energy power plants across the Europe. The experts are saying this would distort the energy markets in the continent. The Britain is not directly linked to the European economy as only France acts as small connector. Renewable energy companies along with its suppliers are suffering without any reason due to these subsidies, informed Managing Director Soenke Tangermann from Greenpeace.
She further added that these subsidies can harm ecologies and kill micro businesses. The financial disadvantages of nuclear projects are huge. EDF, a French corporation is going to build the plant which is expected decrease dependence of the Britain on coal powered plants. Countries like Germany are now planning to reduce nuclear plants and generate more powers from solar and wind sources. The Fukushima disaster in Japan questioned the safely of nuclear plants world over.
The activists are accusing that France and Britain are just taking regressive decision by investing more in the nuclear power. The root these countries have chosen to fight climate change is self-destructive.  The Hinkley Point plan received £16 billion aid from the European commission.
