What people say

Mikhail Chudakov

“In the past two years, 20 new nuclear power reactors were connected to the grid and started producing electricity.This demonstrates the important role that nuclear power continues to play in meeting growing energy demand throughout the world”

Mikhail Chudakov, IAEA, Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Energy (source: iaea.org, 25 May 2017)

Robert Fico

 

“I can’t imagine the Slovak energy sector without nuclear power plants, which produce 55 percent of the electricity in the country. Our government will never abandon this policy and will always fight for the right to choose the way for the production of energy in the future”

Robert Fico, Prime Minister of Slovakia (source: ENEF 2017, 23 May 2017)

Bohuslav Sobotka

 

“Nuclear energy is the right option for the energy mix of the Czech Republic and there is no other way”

Bohuslav Sobotka, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic (source: ENEF 2017, 23 May 2017)
