Nuclear Power in the Energy Mix
We accept the decision by Germany's political majority to accelerate the phaseout of nuclear power and the transformation of the country's energy supply system. But even under the new circumstances, nuclear power will remain in our energy mix for over a decade. In addition, by enlarging our renewables capacity and by building high-efficiency fossil-fueled generating units (large units and smaller, distributed units), we're helping Germany maintain a secure, affordable, and balanced energy supply.
We also operate, and have a majority stake in, three nuclear power plants (NPPs) in Sweden: Oskarshamn 1, 2, and 3. The installed capacity of the NPPs in Germany and Sweden for which we have operational responsibility totals about 8 gigawatts. Two of our NPPs in Germany (Würgassen and Stade) were withdrawn from service several years ago for commercial reasons and are currently being dismantled.
Countries other than Germany continue to see nuclear power as a viable option. For example we have a minority stake in Fennovoima, a project company that plans to build a next-generation NPP in Finland.
