Europe predicted serious problems due to the abandonment of nuclear energy

Saxo Bank expert: rejection of nuclear energy could raise prices in Europe , then this could raise prices in the market, causing serious social problems, Christopher Dembik, head of macroeconomic analysis at Saxo Bank, told RIA Novosti.

In Europe, the debate continues on whether nuclear power should be considered green. Depending on the outcome of the negotiations, the negative impact on the EU economy will vary greatly, Dembik predicts. If nuclear energy is not included in the transformation, it will lead to higher energy prices, put pressure on the economy and may create additional social tension, the expert is sure.

On the other hand, if the European Union continues to use nuclear power plants and not abandon them, the transformation of the energy system will be less painful, Dembik said. At the current level of technological development, renewable energy sources cannot replace traditional energy sources, added a Saxo Bank employee.

Earlier it was reported that France will build nuclear reactors to reduce the country's dependence on energy imports and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. which are necessary to save the planet.

In October, European Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson announced the need for an accelerated transition to renewable energy sources. She promised by the end of 2021 to provide rules that will stimulate the EU countries to quickly switch to clean energy
