Bavaria’s Ministry of the Environment has issued an approval notice to begin dismantling unit 2 of Germany’s Isar NPP. In accordance with the requirements of the Federal Atomic Energy Act.

It supplied some 18% of Bavarian electricity production and was the most powerful NPP in Germany. PreussenElektra – which is responsible for the decommissioning of eight nuclear plants in Germany – had already submitted the application to decommission and dismantle the plant in July 2019.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has ordered the country's three remaining nuclear power stations to continue operating until mid-April. Scholz’s order ends weeks of dispute within his governing coalition. The head of the liberal Free Democratic Party coalition partner, Christian Lindner, was pressing to keep all three plants running until at least 2024, while the Green Party led by Economy Minister Robert Habeck insisted on closing them as scheduled at the end of 2022. The Greens wanted only two plants to be kept on standby, to be used if needed in face of the energy crisis sparked by European sanctions on Russian energy. The liberal Free Democratic Party, on the other hand, had been pushing to keep all three reactors active until 2024.
