Hinkley subsidy: Outgoing European Commission grants nuclear lobby major victory

European Green Party Co-Chair Reinhard Bütikofer comments on the decision by the European Commission to allow the British government to provide state aid for a new nuclear reactor at Hinkley: “This is an extremely unfortunate decision, and goes in the face of the Commission's own guidelines on state aid to energy companies."


UK and Irish Greens team up against state funded nuclear power plant

The Green Party of England and Wales and the Green Party of Ireland are strongly opposing a UK government plan to build a nuclear power plant at Hinkley Point, an area in South West England that overlooks the Irish Sea. They are working hard to expose the economic and environmental risks of the plan, and hope that an EU scrutiny may still derail this socially and environmentally damaging project.
