Mládek: Government wants long-term energy plan based on nuclear and coal power
The minister of industry and trade, Jan Mládek, says the government wants to push through a long-term energy plan based on nuclear and coal power. Speaking on a TV discussion show on Sunday, Mr. Mládek said the cabinet did not want to go down the route of gas-fuelled power stations or the large scale support of renewable resources. The minister said brown coal was an important source of power that ought to be used while respecting mining limits. The government is due to discuss the energy plan before the end of the year.
