Poland’s conservative government may further postpone the construction of the country’s first nuclear reactor as costs remain unpredictable, Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchorzewski said on Wednesday. The project was first pushed in 2009 by Poland’s previous government as part of a drive to find alternatives to coal-fired power generation. Since then it has hit numerous delays due to falling power prices and Japan’s 2011 Fukushima nuclear accident, which drained public support. Despite those hurdles, the governing Law and Justice party, which won a parliamentary election in October, is likely to stick to the plan.
