EurActiv | May 19, 2015

Balkan countries and Ukraine are making "substantial investments" in polluting coal power stations to sell cheap electricity to the European Union, as the bloc searches for new suppliers to reduce its dependence on Russian gas.

EU officials appear reluctant to use energy negotiations next month, or trade law, to force higher air pollution and environmental standards, despite the risks the rush poses to EU climate change and enlargement policies, and to finances and public health in the Balkans.

The government of Georgia has big ambitions to become a regional energy player through hydro-power. But construction in areas prone to landslides has critics worried. Al Jazeera's Robin Forestier-Walker reports.

Государственная инспекция ядерного регулирования не продлила лицензию для второго энергоблока Южно-Украинской АЭС, ссылаясь на его несоответствие требованиям ядерной безопасности. Однако оператор АЭС «Энергоатом» планирует устранить несколько десятков замечаний уже к декабрю этого года, что вызвало обеспокоенность экспертов.

Об этом говорится в постановлении Коллегии Госатомрегулирования от 30 апреля 2015 года.

Dožívajúce sovietske reaktory vyvolávajú obavy o bezpečnosť. Neďaleko jednej obrovskej skládky jadrového paliva beží vojna a Kyjev o ich obnove svojich susedov riadne neinformuje.

În Ucraina, la Cernobîl, în urmă cu 29 de ani se producea cel mai grav accident nuclear din istorie. Explozia reactorului 4 din centrala nucleară de la Cernobîl a degajat un nor radioactiv care a acoperit toată Europa. Însă Ucraina este o țară cu 15 reactoare nucleare, iar incidente s-au inregistrat și la alte centrale. Ascultați un reportaj realizat în Ucraina, de Laurențiu Colintineanu.

Pe 26 aprilie 1986 avea aloc primul si, pana in prezent, cel mai grav accident nuclear din istorie. Astazi, Cernobil e un punct important pe harta turismului in zone devastate. Ucrainenii nu au timp sau dispozitie sa se gandeasca la tragedia din urma cu aproape trei decenii. Strainii vin, privesc si pleaca. Poate ca evolutia e normala dupa atata timp, dar ea ascunde pericolul uitarii si un fals sentiment de siguranta.

Predstavnici nevladine organizacije BankWatch network prošle su sedmice u Sarajevu predstavili studiju o dugoročnoj ekonomskoj održivosti izgradnje novih elektroenergetskih kapaciteta za izvoz struje u zemljama zapadnog Balkana, među kojima je, dakle, i BiH. Ovu su studiju uradili stručnjaci s Univerziteta u Groningenu (University of Groningen, Groningen Centre of Energy Law, Dept. of Law & Economics), a njeni rezultati pokazuju da će - ukoliko zemlje zapadnog Balkana ostvare planirano proširenje kapaciteta - regija imati 2024. godine čak 56 posto viška električne energije!

Monitor Global Outlook | April 6, 2015

SIGNIFICANCE: Croatia, like several countries in the region, is upgrading coal-fired power plants to boost electricity security. This has encountered opposition from environmental groups and local people.

IMPACTS
SOCIAL: Environmental concerns about coal power and other energy projects are real, but have partly gained momentum due to broader political issues.
POLITICAL: The government wants to push ahead with energy projects, but faces rising opposition as a closely-fought election nears.

Zapadni Balkan će do 2024. godine imati 56 posto viška električne energije, zbog čega postoji opasnost od nasukanih sredstava - nasukanih elektrana, upozorava Studija Univerziteta u Groningenu. Za BiH je prihvatljivo, smatra bivši direktor Elektroprivrede BiH Amer Jerlagić, da podmiri svoje potrebe i ostvari višak električne energije od 20 do 25 posto
