UK joins non-binding EU agreement to support nuclear

The UK and 11 other EU countries have signaled their support for nuclear generation. Datamonitor expects benefits from such "soft" agreements to be long-term and to include easier access to funding and R&D sharing.

CEZ: expanding into southeastern Europe

Czech utility CEZ aims to enhance its position as a tier one energy company by focusing on the Balkan states in southeastern Europe.

Czech minister hints at controversial nuclear capacity increase

Hints from the new Czech industry minister that he favors constructing new nuclear capacity are unlikely to elicit a warm reaction elsewhere in the EU, particularly from neighboring anti-nuclear Austria. However, increased capacity is likely to be needed if the Czech Republic is to maintain its role as a net power exporter and diversify away from its over-reliance on coal-fired generation.

Nordic fuel retailers take unmanned voyage east

While unmanned or automated sites have been an integral part of the forecourt retailing landscape in the Nordic markets for decades, in other parts of Europe this concept of automated payment, no shop and slightly more barren forecourts has never quite managed to take off.
