Utility company Eon talks about possibility of delaying the closure of Germany’s last nuclear reactor

German utility Eon is open to discuss the operational extension of its 1.4
GW nuclear reactor Isar 2 as a way for Germany to secure supplies this
winter in the face of an energy crisis, its CFO said on Wednesday.

“Our last nuclear power station will go offline at the end of the year,” said
Mark Spieker, CFO of Eon, in a speech published prior to the presentation
of the company’s interim results. “If, as part of the ongoing stress
test, the federal government reassess the situation, we’re open to
discussions,” he added.

Germany is due to close its last three nuclear
reactors with a total capacity of 4.1 GW by the end of 2022, but the recent
energy crisis caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has spurred calls to
extend the reactors’ lifetimes to avoid blackouts over the winter.
