Economics

A world recession seems unavoidable, meaning less demand for electricity -- and perhaps less demand for wind power. A recession could also dampen demand for gas, and bring its price down again.

But borrowing power is likely to be weakened as stock markets tumble; nuclear, though, would be hit harder than wind if governments clamp down on spending.
