The Polish business community is keener on small reactors, an option not being ruled out by Poland’s Climate Ministry.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media this week will witness a resumption of talks between the Polish government and the U.S. administration over nuclear power, with Poland looking to expand its nuclear energy options over the coming decades.
Both the climate minister, Michał Kurtyka, and the government’s energy infrastructure tsar, Piotr Naimski, will meet in Washington D.C. with Lisa E Gordon-Hagerty, the undersecretary responsible for nuclear safety in the U.S. Department of Energy.
Poland has been waiting for over a decade to take key decisions on its nuclear power program.
The Polish Climate Ministry is open to suggestions on the issue but emphasizes that the small reactor technology is new, and until the technology further develops, it is difficult to formulate new safety regulations, with Poland’s Atomic Agency also taking the same position.
