Survey of Energy Resources 2007
Nuclear Country Notes
A bi-national PWR (current capacity 656 MWe net) has been in operation at Krsko, near the border with Croatia, since 1981. Krsko's output, which is shared 50/50 with Croatia, accounted for 42% of Slovenia's net electricity generation in 2005. According to the Slovenian WEC Member Committee, Krsko will operate till 2023, with possible extension.
It was reported in June 2006 that the Slovenian Ministry of Energy was considering the construction of a second unit at Krsko. Further details emerged in October 2006, when the Economics Minister stated that the new reactor would probably be a PWR, with a net installed capacity of 1 000 MWe; construction could begin in 2013, with commercial operation from 2017.
