Planned Paks II nuclear power plant will go bankrupt without state aid - A business economics analysis

In the first twenty years of operation, the project company will need yearly 330 million EUR capital injections from public money to keep the project going, and pay-off is feasible only if wholesale power prices increase high above European expectations - that is the key finding of Energiaklub’s new study.

The results show that all the energy demand in Hungary can be satisfied in 2030 without Paks II, and 27% of the electricity can be produced by renewable energy plants. This can be achieved through the rationalisation of energy consumption, energy efficiency...
