Looking back on 40 years of energy production.

Switzerland’s first nuclear power plant Beznau 1 went into service in 1969. The new technology was praised at first, but soon opposition started to build up. In March 2011 the government announced plans to gradually replace nuclear power, which currently provides 39 per cent of Switzerland’s power production. (SF/swissinfo.ch)
