E.On seeks $10 billion in damages after German nuclear shutdown

Frankfurt, Germany, June 13, 2012 — Damages sought by E.On AG from the enforced shutdown of nuclear power stations total $9.97 billion, a company spokesman said June 13.

German utilities other than E.On are seeking $18.8 billion in damages related to the German government's decision to exit nuclear energy, according to reports from that country.

Following the March 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, Germany decided to permanently shut down eight of its reactors and pledged to close the rest by 2022.
