The European Court of Justice has dismissed the action brought by three public utility companies against a ruling by the EU Commission on the system of German nuclear power reserves. The Commission had ruled that the reserves set aside by German nuclear power plant operators were compatible with EU competition law. Thus the previous Federal Government`s opinion that the German reserves were set aside justifiably regarding both the reason and the level has also been upheld. In the final instance, the European Court of Justice dismissed the public utility companies` case today (29 November) as inadmissible. The German Atomic Forum (Deutsches Atomforum) emphatically welcomes this confirmation of the German practice of setting aside reserves.
