Baden-Württemberg: Kretschmann: Decision on Neckarwestheim in December

Hausach (dpa / lsw) - Baden-Württemberg's Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) expects a decision on a possible emergency reserve operation of the Neckarwestheim nuclear reactor before the end of the year. "I assume that this decision will be made in December," said Kretschmann on Thursday in Hausach (Ortenaukreis). It will then be a question of whether the nuclear reactor should run or not.

Neckarwestheim II was supposed to go offline for good at the end of the year. When presenting the results of a second network stress test on Monday, Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) announced that two of the three remaining nuclear power plants in Germany should serve as emergency reserves until mid-April - including the kiln in the Heilbronn district.

Energy Minister Thekla Walker (Greens) said that at the end of the year it would already be possible to assess what the energy situation actually was. For the reserve operation of Neckarwestheim, however, questions still have to be clarified, she said. Walker had already announced that she wanted to discuss how to proceed with the federal government and "clarify security aspects in particular".
