Slovenian Climate Strategy 2050 To Endorse Nuclear Energy
The Slovenian National Assembly approved a resolution on climate strategy until 2050 under which Slovenia commits to become climate neutral in the coming 30 years.
The resolution includes a provision saying that Slovenia will use nuclear energy in the long term, so supporting the country in decreasing greenhouse gas emissions by 80-90% compared to 2005 until the middle of the 21st century.
The long-term strategy clearly recognises the key role played by nuclear energy in producing low-carbon electricity, so the resolution calls for a priority implementation of all necessary steps, in accordance with regulations, to ensure the long-term operation of the existing nuclear power plant.
Moreover, supporting the use of nuclear in the long term, the climate strategy calls for new investments for the nuclear sector and for the construction of two or more nuclear power plants, taking into account also the possible use of several small modular reactors (SMRs).
Here available the Resolution on climate strategy until 2050 adopted by the Slovenian National Assembly (in Slovenian).
In 2020, almost 38% of electricity in Slovenia has been produced by nuclear energy, at Krsko NPP, the only operating nuclear power plant in the country.
