    Czech Republic says EU plans for nuclear power do not go far enough

    January 21, 2022 - dpa English


      Prague (dpa) - According to a report, the plans of the European Commission to classify nuclear power and natural gas as climate-friendly do not go far enough for the Czech Republic.

      The liberal-conservative government in Prague under Prime Minister Petr Fiala has submitted several proposals for amendments to Brussels, Friday's edition of the Czech business paper Hospodarske Noviny reported.

      According to the paper, Prague demands that nuclear power should not be classified as a transitional technology. So far, only licences for new nuclear power plants granted until 2045 are covered by the so-called taxonomy regulation.

      The demand that final storage facilities for highly radioactive waste be ready for operation by 2050 has also met with rejection.

      In the Czech Republic, the search for a suitable site is still ongoing, with localities not far from the German border also being considered.

      The planned annual limits for carbon dioxide emissions from gas-fired power plants also met with criticism.

      Germany's neighbour wants to increase the share of nuclear power in the electricity mix to more than half by 2040 and phase out coal by 2033.

      The Temelin nuclear power plant - one of two sites along with the Dukovany nuclear power plant - is barely 60 kilometres from the border with the southern German state of Bavaria.
