Going Nuclear

Country Report
This article discusses the effects of a plan by Czech power group CEZ to build two new reactors at its Temelin nuclear plant on the politics in the Czech republic, as of September 2008. Currently, the country is one of the few electricity exporting states in central and eastern Europe which has led to a strong case for constructing considerable new generating capacity. Failure to construct more generating capacity on a pan-regional basis could lead to more common black-outs and brown-outs.
