Inge sent a letter to Prime Minister Alexandre de Croo (Open Vld) requesting that the costs of extending life and storing additional nuclear waste be shared. Engi suggests that the government also cooperate on the two remaining nuclear reactors. All this is totally unacceptable for the three environmental organizations. “Because what does the Belgian get for those high costs? A nuclear extension does not secure supplies or lower energy prices.”
“The whole fantasy about extending the ‘easy’ life of nuclear power plants as a solution has now been hacked. It turns out to be too costly, not helping our supplies and not having a positive impact on energy prices. Chief Gott is the citizen who is now finally at risk of footing the bill,” Seemingly.
BBL, Greenpeace, and the IEW do not want the federal government to “sign a blank check at the expense of citizens.” The government should ensure “every opportunity for renewable energy and energy storage is provided” at the upcoming capacity auction this fall. They also provide a cost estimate case for full life extension and various salvage options.
