Hydrogen cars were heralded as an avenue towards universal green motoring, but progress has stalled in recent years.
France’s nuclear energy supply and public support schemes for households have in particular helped to limit the rise in prices.
The power plant’s sixth reactor has been shut down, all but eliminating the risk of a nuclear meltdown. But fighting at the site could still release radioactive material.
Artillery shelling, stressed-out technicians and power supply disruptions increase the chances of catastrophe at the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, Europe’s largest.
