Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Because you're replacing cheap coal with still-slightly-more-expensive sustainable supplies. Also the coal plants are required to meet more stringent pollution requirements and that costs money. Also as demand rises you have to put in more infrastructure. And fix aging distribution infrastructure. And build new distribution infrastructure that reaches the new generation facilities. The cheap supply of Russian nuclear fuel is drying up. And inflation.
