Finland Will Lobby The EU To Give Nuclear Power "Sustainable" Status

It looks as though Finland is starting to come back around to the idea of nuclear power - and that they plan on taking their advocacy for the clean energy to the European Union. The country will now lobby the EU for a "sustainable" label on nuclear power.

The EU's decision on whether or not nuclear is "sustainable" has yet to be made. Despite the fact that plants are emission free, "nuclear is currently considered only a low-carbon energy source due to emissions caused by mining and transport," Euractive wrote this week.

Finland's fifth nuclear plant is nearing completing after years of delays, the report notes. Nuclear remains an important energy source for the country, which has a target of being carbon neutral by 2035. Nuclear currently accounts for 30% of the country's power.
