    Deputy Ministers of Energy Michał Kurtyka and Andrzej Piotrowski during their visit in UK on 24-25 May met with Secretary of State Amber Rudd and her team at the Department of Energy and Climate Change. They discussed the new energy solutions and EU energy policy issues. Polish delegation was also discussing their experiences in implementing high-temperature nuclear reactor technology and Polish plans of nuclear energy development in the country.

     

    The Polish delegation met with the representatives of the British nuclear industry incl. Urenco, AMEC Foster Wheeler, Rolls-Royce, U-Battery or National Nuclear Laboratory.

     

    During the visit both sides signed a memorandum of understanding between U-Battery consortium and Polish National Centre for Nuclear Research regarding the construction of the new High-Temperature Gas Cooled reactor (HTGR) in the Polish research institute in Świerk. This new technology of gas-cooled reactors enables both electricity and heat generation and is considered a promising solution for the national nuclear energy development.

     

    - The solutions implemented in the UK support the new energy market and help meet the EU energy and climate policy goals. Poland as well wants that increased energy security goes hand in hand with the economic development of the country, for that we need the most innovative solutions in Poland – said minister Kurtyka during the visit.

     

    - Polish energy policies are very ambitious and we closely observe the implementation of different solutions for energy, energy markets and new technologies in other countries. British model is a pragmatic one that fits the reality on the ground – stressed Minister Piotrowski.
