U.S. still committed to the development of nuclear energy.
White House spokesman Jay Carney, 14, said that although Japan's nuclear accident caused a major earthquake occurred, solar water heater causing the United States on nuclear security concerns, but Obama remains committed to the development of nuclear energy.
Carney told the media that nuclear energy has already provided 20% of U.S. electricity supply, and "is still part of the president's overall energy plan," but in the process of development of nuclear energy, nuclear safety is a priority problem.
Earlier, another White House spokesman Clark Stevens, said, "The president believes that to meet our energy needs on the need to diversify energy sources, including various renewable energy sources, such as wind,solar collector solar, natural gas , clean coal and nuclear energy. are now coming from Japan to keep the information, the U.S. government will learn from it, in order to ensure that the United States safe and responsible use of nuclear energy. "
German nuclear power stations due to close.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, 14, announced last year to suspend operations through the period of the extension of nuclear power plants planned for 3 months during this period, all 17 German nuclear power station will conduct a safety overhaul without reservation.
This is Japan's first nuclear power plant in Fukushima earthquake triggered the explosion and radiation leakage, the German government for the first time in extending the duration of the nuclear power plant operators to make major policy shift. Prime Minister Merkel said at a news conference: "There are no taboos in the security check. All things are checked."
Extend the deadline to suspend nuclear power plant operators a direct result, in Hesse and Baden-Württemberg's two older nuclear power plants in service due to be shut down.
German Foreign Minister Westerwelle stressed at a news conference, a major nuclear accident in Japan after Germany's nuclear power policy to change. He said the independent panel of experts on nuclear security must now be a new risk analysis.
German government in 2002 through a "phase out nuclear power," the decree, be determined to shut down around 2022 in all of the nuclear power plant. October 2010, the German Bundestag passed the government plans to extend the period of nuclear power plant operations, the existing 17 nuclear power plants operating period will be extended an average of 12 years. As a result, the German close the last time a nuclear power plant will be delayed until after 2022 about 2035.
Comprehensive testing nuclear power plant in Finland.
14, according to Finnish media reports, the Finnish Centre for Radiation and Nuclear Safety will be the national security of all nuclear reactors to conduct a comprehensive inspection system to prevent the occurrence of similar recent earthquake in Japan caused by nuclear leakage accident.
Minister of Economic Affairs of Finland accepted the day of Mao Finnish Broadcasting Company interview, said that although the Finnish nuclear power plant safety system is not flawed, but the view of the recent earthquake in Japan caused by leaking nuclear power plant accident, and therefore the safety of nuclear power plants in Finland detection system is necessary.
There are currently two large nuclear power plants in Finland, Finnish industrial power companies were operating nuclear power plants and rich Proton Energy Group Luowei Sa operating nuclear power plants. This two nuclear power plants have two reactors currently in operation. III nuclear power plant reactors currently under construction. The five nuclear reactors were built in coastal areas.
Finland has two nuclear power plants are operating companies, said the nuclear plant in Finland and Japan is unlikely that similar accidents. According to the Finnish nuclear power companies, industrial security chief, introduced in Finland every year at around 10 times the earthquake occurred, but were not felt. According to the Finnish industrial power companies made 15 years ago, seismic risk assessment, the operation of nuclear power plants can withstand Finland million years of a seismic test. In addition, only 3.5 meters of sea level rise in the case of water will be poured into the nuclear power plant, causing its operating problems. However, the Baltic Sea near Finland shallow water, large-scale tsunami is unlikely.
