Reuters quoted Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchorzewski as saying that Poland will not meet European Union carbon emissions targets unless it builds a nuclear power station. Poland produces most of its electricity from coal and has to look at cleaner technologies to comply with EU requirements on emissions reduction requirements. Mr Tchorzewski said in a public television interview that "The decision is that we are getting prepared until the moment when the financing is put together. This is a big problem. But the other side is that without nuclear energy we are not able to fulfil our obligations when it comes to emissions.”

Poland has planned to build its first nuclear power station for years but the project has faced a number of delays. The energy minister is a strong advocate of the nuclear, but faces difficulties in attracting the whole government's approval.
