Slovenia plans a referendum on the construction of a second nuclear unit

Slovenia announced its plans to hold a public referendum in 2024 to decide on whether to build a second nuclear unit to replace its existing Krško Nuclear Power Station once it reaches the end of its lifespan in 2043. The referendum is expected to take place in the second half of 2024 and its results are anticipated to facilitate and accelerate certain procedures to start the construction of the project that could have a maximum capacity of 2.4 GW. The final investment decision (FID) is expected in 2027 or 2028. 

The Krško plant was jointly built with Croatia while the two countries were still part of Yugoslavia in 1983, and is allowed to operate for 60 years until 2043. The 688 MW reactor accounts for 16% of Slovenia's capacity and 41% of its power generation (2022) and supplies both Slovenia and Croatia.
