Hamburg SPD senator now for "extended operation" of the nuclear power plants

Hamburg's finance senator Andreas Dressel has spoken out in favor of limited continued operation of the three German nuclear power plants that are still connected to the grid. "It is clear that nuclear power is not a future technology and the phase-out applies. But now it's just about the last phase of the term and how to get through the winter," said the SPD politician to the Hamburger Abendblatt. His impression is that "even for die-hard opponents of nuclear power, it doesn't make that much of a difference whether you keep the nuclear power plant in reserve for a few months or extend the term by three months."

Dressel went on to explain: "And the stretching operation is technically easier to handle than when we find out in fog and a calm wind that we need the nuclear power plants and then have to start them up again." Expectations also helped shape the price. According to the senator, any technically feasible, pragmatic solution could also have a price-dampening effect.

As recently as July, Mayor Peter Tschentscher had spoken out against the longer use of nuclear energy. The SPD politician told the German Press Agency that he did not see any solution to the current problems in extending the operating times of the nuclear power plants still connected to the grid. He cited the unsolved disposal problem as the reason.

On Saturday, Gerd Landsberg, General Manager of the German Association of Towns and Municipalities, also commented in this direction about the energy market in the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”. In addition to an electricity and gas price brake, Landesberg called for "all power plant capacities - whether coal or nuclear power - to continue to be operated and reactivated". At the same time, excess profits would have to be skimmed off so that spending doesn't get completely out of hand.
