European Union has grown from 15 member states to 27. The
proportion of member states with nuclear energy experience has

drivers of energy policy, the balance of policy enthusiasm in most EU-27
member states has shifted with time in favour of nuclear power. Two
contrasting examples of nuclear experience from new member states
are presented. These examples are of possible benefit to those
considering new nuclear build projects, for instance in the EU-15 states.
Thus far much policy attention has been devoted to developments in
Finland, France and the UK. This work has been made possible by the
EC FP-6 project "CESSA". The CESSA project is conscious of much
useful energy security experience in the countries of central and Eastern
