Serbia: Nuclear Power gen as alternative for energy demand increase?

27. August 2013. / News Serbia Energy

The Draft Energy Development Strategy of Serbia by 2025, assesses that the possibility of nuclear power plants construction should not be completely excluded, considering the environmental constraints for electricity production and future needs.

According to the Draft Strategy, it is estimated that the minimum period necessary to overcome the problems and defects to the beginning of a possible work of such a plant in Serbia is period from 10 to 15 years from the time of ban annulation on the construction of nuclear power plants.

The document announced on the website of the Ministry of Energy reminds that Law of prohibition of nuclear power plants construction is still effective in Serbia and that there is not the regulatory and administrative framework to regulate construction and work of these facilities.

It is explained that the problem of these nuclear power plants construction is that in Serbia there are not scientific or professional personnel to monitor the construction of these facilities work, and the personnel training for the nuclear power industry needs also was terminated.

In the administrative- regulatory and scientific-expert sense the similar situation is with the treatment of highly radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel, according to a Draft Energy Development Strategy. It is also added that it should be kept in mind that this energy is based on imported fuels.
