Environmental Impact Assessment for the first NPP in Poland


Poland wants to build its first NPP. In 2015, the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) started with a scoping phase, since Nov 2022 the next phase is conducted. The EIA Report and other documents in English and German language can be found here.

The public consultation for the transboundary EIA was open between midth November and midth December 2022, and the Joint Project submitted a statement.

One of the biggest risks of construction of nuclear power plants is that they’re plagued with delays of up to several decades, and part of them are even abandoned. During this time, other energy projects are pursued with less vigor or even coal-fired power plants continue to operate. We therefore call for a Plan B consisting of the massive expansion of renewables and energy efficiency because the climate crisis does not wait.
