At the European Council summit on May 22, national leaders of member states will likely approve a change of course on Europe’s energy policy.

As Der Standard points out

Whereas in recent years the emphasis has been on the development of renewables and climate protection, the priority will now be on the lowering of energy costs […] with a view to boosting growth and job creation. Low energy prices will play a decisive role in reinforcing competitiveness.

The newspaper adds that proposals for greater investment in nuclear power will also be on the agenda for the summit, where “France and Great Britain will be advocating a resumption of subsidies for atomic energy.”
