Germany’s four operators of nuclear power stations are to face a bill of 18 billion Euros for decommissioning the country’s reactors.

The growth will be further ramped up by the trend for more mobile devices like smartphones and tablet computers. This is the finding of a current Arthur D. Little-analysis which includes input from around 200 media experts. Moreover, 80% of respondents expect the convergence of TV and the Internet.
