The Slovak government has approved a long-term energy plan based on a further expansion of nuclear power, cautious development of renewables, and reducing dependence on locally produced and imported coal.

The framework reiterates the government’s target of building a new nuclear plant by 2030 at the Jaslovske Bohunice site, after two new reactors, Slovsnske Elektarne’s Mochovce-3 and -4, are completed.
