A poll has shown that 57% of Poles consider the construction of a nuclear power station in the country as necessary, according to a factsheet published by the Polish ministry of climate.

According to the poll, 20% of respondents do not think a nuclear station is necessary, while 23% had no opinion on the matter.

Sixty percent said they were aware of Poland’s plans to build the country’s first nuclear power station, while 83% said there is a need for a nationwide programme to inform and educate society about energy, including nuclear energy, in an “objective and reliable” manner.

The survey was carried out from 31 July to 12 August this year among 2,028 citizens between 18 and 64 years of age.

According to the latest update of the national nuclear energy programme, Poland plans to build from 6,000 to 9,000 MW of installed nuclear capacity based on proven, large-scale, pressurised water nuclear reactors of Generation III and III+ design.
