Switzerland has committed to phasing out it's nuclear power program and move to renewable sources. Nuclear Energy provides 40% of all of Switzerland's power (France's power is 80% generated from nuclear power). The youngest reactor life span will end in 2034. They will depend on and develop energy provided by wind and solar and expand their renewable energy program.
There are about 143 operational nuclear reactors in the European Union at this time. While it's worrisome to Switzerland that these reactors are out of their scope of control the E.U. will begin testing for safety in natural and man-made disasters. Some will agree to more aggressive testing than others.... another worrisome prospect to deal with.
