Answer given by Ms Simson on behalf of the European Commission

The choice of the energy resources in their energy mix, including the decision whether to use nuclear power plants, is within the remits of each Member State as provided in Article 194 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union[1]. The Commission does not intervene in such decisions and has no powers to intervene in the way Member States make or promote their energy policy decisions in areas within their competence.

The two organisations the Honourable Member referred to are known to the Commission. They regularly send visitor groups to the Commission, where Commission representatives provide explanations about the different aspects of EU policies. The Commission does not provide funding to third parties for promoting their opinions in Member States.

As a general comment, fighting against misinformation is very important for the Commission, also in the context of the European Green Deal and ahead of the European elections in 2024, in line with its policy on fighting disinformation and fake news.
