EU official: Europe must consider nuclear-free future

BERLIN - Nuclear experts from the European Union meeting on Tuesday in Brussels must consider whether the bloc can one day move away from nuclear energy, EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger said.
Oettinger called the meeting to coordinate EU policy in light of Japan's nuclear crisis, as Germany suspended its planned extension of the lifespan of its nuclear power plants on Monday.
"We must also raise the question of if we, in Europe, in the foreseeable future, can secure our energy needs without nuclear energy," Oettinger told Germany's ARD television.
