Switzerland has five units operating which in 2002 generated 40% of the country’s electricity requirement. There has been debate on whether Switzerland should exit from nuclear power but in April 2003 (Foratom e-Bulletin, 2003b), the Swiss parliament approved a new law providing for the nuclear option to be left open. This law extends the rights of Swiss citizens to take decisions on the future use on nuclear energy and also in the licensing of waste repositories. There is a recommendation of both government and parliament to vote against forthcoming referenda, which propose to phase out nuclear energy and to replace nuclear power plants by alternative energy sources over an unspecified period.
