Lawyers acting on behalf of British anti-nuclear campaigners have submitted a complaint about atomic subsidies to the European Commission which, if upheld, could prevent the building of new nuclear reactors in the EU. “Nuclear power is heavily subsidised, and even on the British government’s terms that is wrong,” said Gerry Wolff, coordinator of the Energy Fair group which lodged the complaint with the EU’s Competition directorate-general. “They’ve said repeatedly that nuclear power shouldn’t receive any subsidies,” he told EurActiv.
