... and change of course in energy legislation.

In the area of energy, the environment ministry’s first policy draft includes support for biomass, biogas stations and heat pumps in order to bolster effective and sustainable energy sources. Mr Drobil said that state grants should not be put towards solar and wind power. The environment minister wants amendments to the law on renewable energy sources to ensure the development of prospective sources while not influencing electricity prices for end-users. The nuclear programme, he said, would have the ministry’s support in ensuring maximum security.
