Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Germans say "NO" to nuclear----E-on has to invest in it somewhere.

Germany's E.ON presses govt for nuclear policy

The German energy giants E-on and RWE want a part of the nuclear industry pie, but guess what, their own government will not allow them to consider new nuclear--- This leaves them craving to  join EDF in their exploitation of weaker governments and countries who will buckle to their gigantic demands.

It could possibly allow them to use good old England as a dumping ground for nuclear and then they can take their electricity back to the fatherland.

With offshore wind, new photovoltaics, new (NOT IMPROVED)  nuclear the global energy companies that own our energy infrastructure will surely have an abundance of power they can sell to the whole of Europe.

England then becomes like any other third world colonised country---Our big European brothers will take advantage of a weaker group of people.

Germany's biggest power company, E.ON, posted mixed quarterly results on Wednesday and pressed the government to make up its mind on the issue of nuclear energy.

"There has long been a lack of clarity about the direction of Germany?s energy policy," a statement quoted chief executive Johannes Teyssen as saying. "This needs to change."

Teyssen said German authorities needed to make "an environmentally and economically sensible decision on the future of nuclear energy in this country".

Chancellor Angela Merkel said last year that she would review a previous government's decision to abandon nuclear power by 2020, but has not yet acted, to the frustration of German power companies.

Their share prices have been weighed down by the uncertainty, with E.ON stock losing around 20 percent of its value since the beginning of the year.

The group reported better than expected second quarter operating results, even though net profit fell by 9.0 percent to 1.7 billion euros (2.2 billion dollars) owing to negative tax effects and higher interest payments.

Adjusted net profit, the figure followed by analysts, slipped by just 1.0 percent to 3.3 billion euros, in line with an average analyst forecast compiled by Dow Jones Newswires.

On the operating level, E.ON reported adjusted core earnings before interest and tax (Ebit) in the first half of the year of 6.1 billion euros, a gain of 11 percent from the first six months of 2009.

Market forecasts had pencilled in a more modest figure of 5.83 billion euros.

First half sales gained 6.7 percent to 44.3 billion euros, slightly lower than expected.

The power giant confirmed its full-year targets meanwhile, an increase of up to 3.0 percent in adjusted Ebit, and stable adjusted net profit.
