Weak Signal's description 
Finland, China and US are currently building nuclear power plants and planning to start new constructions. The public opinion in these countries has changed towards more fission friendly after long political debates and discussions in media. Furthermore, Sweden canceled its decision to close its nuclear plants. Mandatory reduction of CO2 emmissions and vulnerability of Russian energy supplies have been two drivers behind.
