This week's deal between the Belgian government and Engie for a 10-year life extension to the Doel-4 and Tihange-3 reactors, following a multi-year closure, saw the utility get almost all it was asking for: a government investment in the reactors, the promise of a guaranteed revenue stream once they restart, and a cap on Engie's entire Belgian nuclear waste liabilities. Engie "got almost their entire shopping list," Bram Claeys, a Brussels-based policy adviser with the Regulatory Assistance Project, told Energy Intelligence.
