The Belgian government and Engie today agreed on the broad outline of a deal to extend the lifetime of the two youngest of Engie's seven reactors in Belgium, all of which are currently slated to be shuttered by the end of 2025. The government reconsidered its commitment to a nuclear phaseout earlier this year, prompted by the European energy crisis. Separately, in preparation for an anticipated energy crunch this coming winter, the two sides are also discussing the more temporary operational extension of an older reactor slated to be permanently shuttered in February.
