Slovakia - Energy

Short-term priorities

  • establish a decommissioning plan to implement the decision to shut down the Bohunice V1 nuclear reactors;
  • implement an energy strategy, with special attention to energy efficiency;
  • maintain high levels of nuclear safety in the Bohunice V2 and Mochovce nuclear power plants.

Assessment (November 2001)

A decommissioning plan has been established for Bohunice V1 but needs to be adopted and implemented. Efforts continued to be made to ensure high levels of nuclear safety but this priority has still only partially been met. No progress can be reported in the field of energy efficiency.

Assessment (October 2002)

An updated decommissioning plan has been produced for Bohunice V1, but still needs to be refined, adopted and implemented.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Medium-term priorities

  • implement a long-term overall energy strategy, based on efficiency and diversification and providing for alignment on EU energy legislation and its application;
  • complete the Mochovce nuclear plant in compliance with international safety standards;
  • implement a realistic closure programme for the Bohunice V1 plant.

Assessment (October 1999)

Slovakia has decided to shut down the Bohunice V1 plant, which represents a major step towards achieving this priority.

Assessment (November 2000)

There has been no progress in these areas.

Assessment (November 2001)

Efforts are still needed to prepare the internal energy market, to align oil stock requirements and to ensure security of supply. There has been significant progress to ensure a high level of nuclear safety at the Bohunice V2 and Mochovce nuclear power plants. The Slovak Nuclear Regulatory Authority has been adequately strengthened. However, this priority has only partially been met.

Assessment (October 2002)

Slovakia has made good progress with strengthening the body responsible for oil stocks, notably by increasing its staff.

Assessment (November 2003)

Please refer to the fact sheets on the adoption of the Community acquis.

Following the signing of the Accession Treaty on 16 April 2003, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia acceded to the European Union on 1 May 2004.
