The “Alliance of Regions for Phasing out Nuclear Power across Europe” presents the first international study on the risks of lifetime extensions of ageing nuclear power plants.

At a time of significant market turbulences in the atomic sector, aintaining
nuclear energy capacity means to extend the operating lifetime of ageing reactors beyond their original design base. Ageing nuclear reactors are highly prone to accidents, and the inhabitants of Europe’s regions are being exposed to mounting risks. At the event first conclusions of the study will be presented, as a basis for discussion of possible courses of action.

The “Alliance of Regions for Phasing out Nuclear Power across Europe” has been founded to counter dangerous narratives of the pro-nuclear industry and to push for an Energy Union committed to energy efficiency and renewable energy.
