Abstract: Recently the Institute of Energy of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission carried out a study about the situation in the EU nuclear power plants in relation to large refurbishment investments. Such investments usually have the aim to increase both the generated output and the safety performance. As far as accepted by the national regulatory bodies they go along with long term operation programs. The study looks at in which extend long term operation and power uprate programs significantly influence the decrease of nuclear generated electricity up to 2040. Taking into consideration a reduced set of parameters it is considered how much non-nuclear generating capacity is needed for compensating the decrease of nuclear generating capacity that can be expected in the time span 2010-2040.
