BENE, Better Environment with Nuclear Energy - To illustrate the long-term effects of national decisions in the energy sphere, consider the cases of Ireland and Finland., Ireland rejected nuclear power generation while Finland adopted it., Finland has a balanced portfolio of fuels in its generation mix, producing around 30% from each of nuclear, hydro and coal, with the remainder mainly coming from gas. Ireland, on the other hand, has over 60% from gas, 14% from renewables and the remainder is from coal and peat. Critically, Irish households pay 50% more for their electricity than the Finns and our industry pays twice as much as Finnish industry for its electricity.
