European states divided, as decision looms on December 22nd about including nuclear as ”green”

The EU is set to make a final decision on December 22 on whether to
include nuclear power and natural gas in its green taxonomy. The issue is
dividing EU members, with France and number of nuclear CEE states, such as
the Czech Republic, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, in favour of including
atomic energy and natural gas, while Germany is leading a group that also
includes Italy, Spain, Denmark, Austria and Luxembourg that is against
including gas and nuclear in the green taxonomy.

Pro-gas and pro-nuclear
countries regard gas as a transition fuel that can help reduce emissions in
countries such as Poland and the Czech Republic that are now aiming to
reduce coal’s role in power generation. The nuclear lobby, meanwhile, is
strong, with energy ministers from Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Finland,
France, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia speaking out in
October to support nuclear’s inclusion in the taxonomy.
