It is quite absurd that we import Indonesian coal for the Šoštanj thermal power plant (TPP) – and why don’t we simply buy out the Croatian half of the Krško nuclear power plant (NPP) instead of planning to build another unit there, noted the renowned Slovenian climatologist Lučka Kajfež Bogataj. She added that instead of focusing on unit 6 of the Šoštanj TPP and unit 2 of the Krško NPP...
