In November 2015 the European Commission opened an in-depth state aid investigation into Hungary's plans to provide financing for the construction of two new nuclear reactors in Paks. This gave interested third parties an opportunity to comment on the measure. Energiaklub has submitted its comments.
The key question of our analysis is whether the Paks-2 nuclear power plant company will be capable of independent operation in the economic sense, or its survival will depend on further additional aid by the owner, the central budget, even after its commissioning. We examine from a corporate perspective in what way the already disclosed financing terms and conditions affect the everyday operation of the power plant company.
