Risks to Russian investment in Eastern European nuclear

Report summary

With tensions in Ukraine pushing Russian-European relations to their lowest point since the Cold War, Russian involvement in Europe's energy sector has come under increased scrutiny. 8 GW of new nuclear capacity, with major Russian interest, is proposed in Eastern Europe. However, heightened geopolitical risk combined with market-based uncertainties creates a substantial threat to these projects and any delays or cancellations could have a dramatic impact on the region's demand for gas.
