Soaring natural gas prices, climate change pressures and pro-nuclear populism seems to be pushing a solid chunk of Europe toward more support for nuclear energy.

Iran nuclear talks resume today in Vienna; Canada's Bruce Power raises C$500 million in a novel green bond for nuclear investments; and Romanian operator Nuclearelectrica signs a C$8.4 million contract with SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Candu Energy for "engineering services" related to updating numerous documents needed to restart work on the long-stranded Cernavoda-3 and -4.
