Description Fukushima nuclear disaster has negatively affected the attitude towards nuclear energy worldwide and has provoked certain policy responses. That is why today nuclear industry seems to be in trouble, primarily in the West: both AREVA and Westinghouse found themselves facing bankruptcy. On the contrary, Russian Rosatom has improved its performance in the recent years, aiming at settling down on the leading positions in the realm. Hence, the other nuclear companies could learn by example and focus more on what works in the industry: implementing a robust development strategy and scaling up. Losing momentum might have serious consequences such as considerable re-distribution of market shares or even dominance of one nuclear technology over the others in the long-run.
