Scrap Hinkley Point Nuclear Project
Renewable power has made new nuclear unnecessary in the UK. Data produced by the UK's Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) shows that in 2014 hydropower contributed 1.7 GW to the grid. Also six bio-electricity technologies, all capable of continuous power operation, together produced 4.5 GW of electric power. That is already 6.2 GW of continuous power, nearly twice the 3.2 GW that Hinkley would have struggled to produce by 2030.

Fukushima Clean-Up Is Taking Forty Years
Removal of nuclear fuel from power plant that suffered triple meltdown following 2011 tsunami could take 40 years or more. Radioactive fuel in three reactors melted down after the tsunami knocked out the plant’s cooling system on 11 March 2011. Tepco is persisting with the government’s roadmap for the Fukushima cleanup, which envisions fuel removal to begin in 2021 and end between 30 and 40 years later, at an estimated cost of almost $20bn (£14bn).

France Paving With Solar Panels
France is paving 621 miles of road with solar panels over the next five years, with the goal of providing cheap, renewable energy to five million people. Five years have been spent on developing solar panels that are only about a quarter of an inch thick and are hardy enough to stand up to heavy highway traffic without breaking or making the roads more slippery.

Italy's Booming Solar Energy Market
In Italy, the price of solar power can now compete with other sources of energy. As government incentives expire, solar energy producers have to become more creative to make the most of their clean power. A fruit and vegetable market in Bologna has Europe's biggest solar roof, and uses its solar panels to power electric cars.
