Czechs to Generate 50% Nuclear Power by 2030, Hospodarske Says

The Czech Republic plans to generate 50 percent of its electricity output by nuclear reactors in 2030, Hospodarske Noviny reported, citing a report commissioned by the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The plan is counting on the completion of two new reactors at CEZ AS (CEZ)’s Temelin nuclear power station as well as one new unit at the Dukovany station, the newspaper said, citing the report, which will serve as a basis for the government’s updated national energy strategy plan. Renewable energy sources probably won’t make up more than 15 percent of the country’s power output, according to the report.
