A resolution of the Czech Parliament states: “Nuclear energy must not be seen as a temporary category, but must be seen as an instrument that enables a low-carbon transformation of the economy and makes it socially sustainable in the long term.”
According to Czech lawmakers, nuclear energy is the only way to meet Czech climate commitments. The resolution was proposed by members of the future five-party government coalition led by Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS, ECR). Czech lawmakers also presented their reports ahead of Thursday’s European Council. It is the last summit of the outgoing Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš. According to Babiš, the resolution encounters an already open door as the status of nuclear energy and natural gas has already been clarified.
The European Commission will present its plan for nuclear and gas energy on December 22nd as part of the EU classification of green taxonomy.
