Wind power is second choice behind nuclear, say Finns

FINLAND: Wind power has been rated second after nuclear energy as the most popular solution to Finland's national long-term energy self-sufficiency needs, according to a TNS Gallup poll.

The survey finds that 31% of Finns favour construction of additional nuclear power capacity, while 25% favour wind. The shares for nuclear and wind show a slight drop compared to a similar survey conducted in April.

The sharpest increase in preference related to bio-energy, with 22% of those surveyed supporting the construction of more bio-energy production plants, up four percentage points on the April poll.
