Polskie Elektrownie Jadrowy (PEJ) has applied to Poland's Ministry of Climate for a decision-in-principle on the construction of the country's first large NPP, while metals company KGHM Polska Miedz has applied to the Ministry for a decision-in-principle on construction of a small modular reactor (SMR) power plant. The applications came after the adoption of an updated nuclear energy law allowing such applications to be submitted at the beginning of the process.
