Abstract: Brazil doesn't plan to invest in new nuclear facilities until at least 2020, Marcio Zimmermann, the energy ministry's executive secretary, said earlier this month. However, he added that future plans could include the construction of four to eight nuclear plants by 2030. What is the current outlook for nuclear power in Brazil and other Latin American countries? How did last year's Fukushima accident affect nuclear development in the region? Have major offshore oil and shale gas finds diminished the appeal of nuclear power?
