Austria contests upgrade of Paks nuclear power plant with EC

The Austrian government today sent a formal letter of complaint to the European Commission outlining its objections to the upgrade of Hungary’s sole nuclear power plant in Paks, Hungarian news agency MTI reported.

It also expressed concerns that these measures could lead to a “distortions on the internal electricity market" and push out players in the sustainable energy sector.
