In his column for Zeit online on 10 August, Theo Sommer, the respected editor-at-large at Die Zeit, said Germany still needs nuclear power. He asks: “Will the lights go out in Germany in 2023 because we are no longer producing enough electricity?” He says German electricity consumption is currently around 580TWh per year, while the Federal Economy Ministry estimates that demand will increase by 15% to 645 to 665TWh in 2030.

On 2 July, a new and defining stage in the development of Argentina’s Carem25 Project began, with the signing of the contract for the completion of the reactor building concluded between the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA) and Nucleoeléctrica Argentina SA (NA-SA). The agreement was signed by CNEA president Adriana Serquis and NA-SA president José Luis Antúnez. Through the new contractual relationship the Argentine NPP operating company reconstitutes itself as a contractor for CNEA in the construction of the building, a role it had played in the first stage of that work from 2014 to 2017.

Nucleoeléctrica Argentina SA (NA-SA) will complete the construction of the prototype CAREM-25 reactor under a contract signed with the country's National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA). The contract specifies construction of the small modular reactor will be completed within three years. Work on the small pressurised water reactor began at a site adjacent to the Atucha nuclear power plant in Buenos Aires Province in early 2014, but has been suspended several times.
