Ecolo ensures that the exit of nuclear power from 2025 is the cheapest option. Ecolo has produced a roadmap for the exit of the nuclear power in which it concludes in particular that the complete exit of the nuclear in 2025 would be the cheapest option from the first years. The Greens assert that the assumptions used to identify the “additional costs” of the closure of all plants in 2025 compared to the “10-year extension” option are highly questionable on at least three points: an overvaluation of the costs of alternatives. , an under-evaluation of the costs of the extension of the reactors and an omission to take into account the economic cost of the nuclear “risk”. If we consider the truth costs, it is the option “complete exit of the nuclear power in 2025” which would be the least expensive from the first years, for an amount which, according to the scenario, can go up to 600 million euros, according to Ecolo.
