To the Minister of Energy, rising prices as a result of 20 years of political stagnation: “We have the highest bills in Europe”

In recent days, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine following a stance taken by employers’ federations has led to uncertainty over gas supplies, with the majority of Groen’s Flemish partners postponing or questioning their withdrawal from nuclear power by 2025.

Open Vld did not speak on Hemicycle on Thursday while focusing on making more profit with Vooruit Engie-Electrabel. MP Leanne Dyrik (CD&V), on the other hand, recalled that in his party’s view, it was necessary to study in depth both the definitive outflow of nuclear energy and the expansion of the two reactors. “There is a lot of concern among citizens and businesses about their energy bills,” he said.

“There is no safety and adventure, these are the words I heard in the mouths of some entrepreneurs, even mine,” the minister underlined. “The legacy we face after 20 years of collective immobility is very painful. We have more bills in Europe.”

According to the minister, the solution for the future involves upgrading the infrastructure and not extending the power plants for more than 40 years. He promised that the majority agreement reached in October 2020 and the promises made between the government partners ahead of Christmas would be respected. The decision will be made on March 18. Until then, “citizens expect professionalism from us,” he added.

In the French-speaking opposition, Georges Dolmond (CDH) considers it “irresponsible” to completely withdraw from nuclear power by 2025. “However the reason seems to be that Vivaldi has won some parties.” Energy Minister Dinne van der Stratten answered a number of questions that the gradual elimination of nuclear energy was not an increase in energy prices, but an indication of twenty years of political stagnation.
