Nuclear power is the only truly low-emissions electric power generating source that could work on today’s power grid Small modular reactors have gained plenty of traction lately as a potential solution to some of the biggest problems nuclear energy faces But the real problem for nuclear energy in the U.S. is actually a lack of trust in government and public opinion regarding the energy source itself In the search for the next generation of large-scale, central station, baseload electric power generating stations, nuclear is the only option that does not emit vast amounts of CO2. For this reason, we believe new nuclear technologies will be revisited as complements to intermittent wind and solar. Given present concerns about gas and oil availability, uranium is relatively plentiful and (given its energy density) is easier to stockpile than natural gas or oil. Uranium prices, like all commodities, can be volatile. But uranium […]
