Nuclear energy that's super safe and affordable

post-image
The next generation of nuclear reactors called small modular reactors (SMR's) can be built in a factory and transported to customers by truck or barge. They could overcome Australia's resistance to power by fission and lead to super-safe and relatively cheap sources of electricity using Australia's vast uranium resources . Rolls Royce say theirs could be in operation by 2030. Good to hear that a Parliamentary Enquiry will be held in Australia to review opportunities with nuclear energy. It seems that the following generation of nuclear energy uses fusion which does not need Australia's uranium. https://www.afr.com/companies/energy/the-new-nuclear-option-small-safe-and-cheap-20190813-p52gr6 https://www.ideaspies.com/post/small-nuclear-power-reactors-for-affordable-low-carbon-energy/.

An alternative overview can be sighted at https://reneweconomy.com.au/small-modular-reactors-and-the-nuclear-culture-wars-73761/ For idea spies interested in learning more about this issue, Reinvent Australia Inc is organising a special moderated discussion panel on alternative energy sources in Sydney on the evening of 31 October. The speaker on nuclear energy is a leading proponent of SMRs and will be happy to answer any questions . Also included on the programme is a leading specialist who will discuss Australia's future hydrogen-based economy For further information and/or to express interest in attending, please email angus@leisuresolutions.com.au
