Report: Czech PM calls for new nuclear plants, even in breach of EU law

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said the country must build new nuclear plants even if that goes against European law, Reuters reported Oct. 16.

"We have to push it through, even if we were to breach European law," Babis reportedly said, adding that energy security is the country's priority. The new nuclear projects will help replace the capacity currently being provided by aging coal and nuclear facilities.

According to the Reuters report, the Czech government is negotiating with CEZ a. s. for potential state guarantees in building the projects. The Euorpean Union, however, would have to approve any state aid for the projects.

CEZ, which is majority-owned by the state, previously canceled a tender to construct a new nuclear unit at the Temelin generation facility in 2014 when the government declined to provide state guarantees.

The current government wants CEZ to build a reactor at the Dukovany nuclear plant as a replacement for the reactors that will be retired after 2035.
