Thus we demand:

  • much greater expansion of research spending on renewable energy
  • systems, redirecting current funding of nuclear energy research to this end
  • for the remaining nuclear research (for safety in operation, dismantlement and disposal), make independent reviews and public debate mandatory
  • enter a transition period of phase out and dismantlement of nuclear plants and development of renewable energy systems and technologies,
