Energiewende collides with Czech and Polish nuclear power projects

Germans and Central Europeans lock horns over energy

By Paul Hockenos

With winter creeping nearer, the Czech Republic has warned Germany in explicit terms that it will not tolerate surges of excess German electricity swamping its transmission grid this winter. It has stated plainly that it will shut its grid to Germany if blackouts threaten. The Germans for their part aren't pleased in the least with the plans of the Czechs to build new units at their Temelin nuclear plant, just 60 kilometers from the German border in Bavaria. With Slovakia and Poland taking the Czech side and Austria backing Germany, the energy imbroglio in Mitteleuropa is complete. EER's Berlin-correspondent Paul Hockenos reports from Ostrava in the Czech Republic.
