Unable to build nuclear capacity at home due to a long-standing moratorium on new reactor build, German utility E.On may is looking to build reactors elsewhere in Europe:
Additionally, [E.On Energie Chief Executive Johannes] Theyssen confirmed E.On's interest to build nuclear power plants in foreign markets.I have to wonder if Germany may wind up importing electricity from abroad, generated by reactors they refused to build at home.
The company has already sent a letter of intent to the Romanian government stating its interest to participate in the construction of two new nuclear reactors in Cernavoda as a strategic investor, Theyssen said.
At the same time, Theyssen said, E.On is monitoring the Dutch market, where nuclear power is being reconsidered as an option, and the U.K. where the government is in favor to build new nuclear facilities, Theyssen added.
