Re: Back to nuclear energy!

Nuclear energy generation is a capital intensive activity and it also requires a lot of safety related measures to be taken. Nuclear energy stations cannot be located in the heart of cities or on desnsely populated areas because of the possible radiation hazard.

 

I think Germany has taken a very wise decision to do away with Nuclear energy in light of the infamous Fukushima incident in Japan.

 

Alternate energy sources like wind energy, solar energy and bio-fuel are the best energy generation options  in my opinion.

If demand for electric energy will be this high, Germany should look back on nuclear energy options. It may look more sustainable.
