, said The EU Commissioner, Thierry Breton. He however added that what the existing nuclear power plants only need is an investment of € 50 B only by 2030. And another € 500 B will be required by 2050 for the new generation stations. Breton’s favors included the following; nuclear energy in the EU’s Green Taxonomy, and classification of environmentally sustainable activities for investors.
