Belgium commits to phasing out existing nuclear power plants

Raf Casert reports for TechXplore that Belgium has committed to phasing out existing nuclear power plants.

The C3 Take
  • Belgium will phase out all existing nuclear energy plants by 2023, but will still invest in the deployment of small modular reactors.
  • Nuclear energy is safe, reliable, and our largest source of carbon free power.
  • As we are seeing in Germany, the government picking energy winners and losers hurts consumers and the environment alike. Belgium should reconsider this phase out of its nuclear plants.

“The 27-nation bloc is expected to decide before the end of the year whether to include nuclear-generated energy among the economic activities that qualify for sustainable investment, a decision with far-reaching consequences for energy provisions in the bloc.”
