The article discusses the possibility that the future of nuclear power generation may be set back due to financial constraints. It states that while the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi station in Japan has turned public opinion against the creation of more nuclear plants, delays at the Flamanville Unit 4 and Unit 3 reactors in France and Finland, respectively, could play a bigger factor. It cites the problems regarding standardization, and how such impacts the industry.
