French want less nuclear power, applaud German energy transition – survey

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

A majority of French people would like to reduce the share of nuclear power in their country and they applaud the roll-out of renewables in Germany, according to an online survey by Green think tank Heinrich Böll Foundation and French foundation La Fabrique Ecologique, reports the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. Around 80 percent of respondents said France relies too much on old nuclear power stations and does too little to save energy, while 55 percent said German energy policy is a positive example. The article says the survey results are important because both countries want to increase their cooperation in energy policy despite having many opposing interests.
