Energy: CEE countries and France supporting nuclear power

Media, letter to Commission on energy and climate neutrality

13 October, 16:00
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, OCT 13 - Ten EU countries, mostly from Central and Eastern Europe, have signed a letter asking the European Commission "to recognize nuclear power as a low-carbon energy source that should be part of the Union's transition towards climate neutrality," the Slovenian news agency STA reported on Tuesday, quoting information previously made public from Euronews. The letter, which was initiated by France, country leader in the EU in the production of energy from nuclear power, has been supported by Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Romania, Euronews said.

Nuclear energy, STA reported, is "crucial for energy independence" and "more countries now realize that," Slovenian Infrastructure Minister Jernej Vrtovec commented on Twitter, recalling that plans have been already set in motion for a future new unit of Slovenia's sole nuclear power plant of Krsko.
