As Japan restarted some of its nuclear reactors amid mass protests, questions about the safety and future of the nuclear energy continue to swirl. But according to the head of the Russian state nuclear agency, the industry is only set to grow.
In the aftermath of Fukushima, Germany announced it was going to go 'nuclear free' by 2022, relying exclusively on solar and other renewable energy sources for its needs. However, Sergey Kirienko, head of Russian state nuclear agency Rosatom, says the nuclear energy industry is far from decline despite the recent downturn. He shared his assessment of nuclear energy investment in an exclusive RT interview.
