Germany to mothball largest coal power plants to meet climate targets 2.7.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page

Levy on most polluting power stations is scrapped, but largest brown coal-fired plants will be shuttered as Germany moves to cut emissions 40% by 2020

Germany agreed on Thursday to mothball about five of the country’s largest brown coal power plants to meet its climate goals by 2020, after months of wrangling between the parties in chancellor Angela Merkel’s coalition.

But Merkel and the leaders of her two junior coalition partners also, in effect, agreed to set up a “capacity reserve” system where utilities could switch on the brown coal plants if there were power shortages in the country.

Germany's oldest remaining nuclear plant shuts down 28.6.2015 DNA: Wide Angle
Germany's oldest remaining nuclear reactor has been shut down, part of a move initiated four years ago to switch off all its nuclear plants by the end of 2022. The Grafenrheinfeld reactor in the southern state of Bavaria was taken offline as scheduled overnight, authorities and operator E.ON said. Grafenrheinfeld went into service in 1981. It is the first reactor to close since Germany switched off the oldest eight of its 17 nuclear reactors in 2011, just after Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant disaster. The next to close will be one of two reactors at the Gundremmingen plant in Bavaria, which is set to shut by the end of 2017. The rest will be closed by the end of 2022. Environment Minister Barbara Hendricks said the Grafenrheinfeld shutdown is "a visible signal that the nuclear exit is moving forward." "Every nuclear power station that goes offline reduces the so-called residual risk that is linked to the use of nuclear power plants and moves us a step forward in the reorganisation of our energy supply," ...

Bombay High Court seeks information on security provided to nuke scientists 27.6.2015 Asian Age: Mumbai
The Bombay high court on Friday asked the government of Maharashtra and the department of atomic energy to inform it within two weeks if proper security measures have been provided to nuclear scientists at their workplace. The division bench of Justices V.M. Kanade and B.P. Colabawala sought this information in reply to a public interest litigation (PIL) seeking formation of a special investigating team (SIT) to probe the deaths of several nuclear scientists in suspicious circumstances. Advocate Ashish Mehta, on behalf of social activist Chetan Kothari, had filed this PIL claiming that India was turning out to be a dangerous place to work for nuclear scientists. The petition had contended that over the last few years, a number of India’s nuclear scientists had been dying under mysterious circumstances and the police is classifying these deaths either as ‘unexplained’ or ‘suicides’. The judges observed that several decades ago many scientists had died because they were not provided with suits to protect ...
