Nuclear energy can play a key, new role in providing Indiana with a more diverse low-carbon electricity supply, the Nuclear Energy Institute told state legislators this week.
In his 2010 book “Power Hungry,” Robert Bryce writes, “Countries that can provide cheap and reliable electric power to their citizens can grow their economies and create wealth. Those that can’t, can’t.” Experts warn that the U.S. may forfeit the electric generation diversity that helped make it a superpower.
NRC Affirms Benefit of Nuclear Industry’s Post-Fukushima Safety Enhancements - Nuclear Energy Institute
After four years of investing billions of dollars in safety enhancements, the U.S. nuclear energy industry is seeing light at the end of the post-Fukushima regulatory tunnel.
At first, supercomputing and nuclear energy would seem an odd couple. Nuclear power is an analog technology rooted in the 1940s, while supercomputing is a product of revolutions in microprocessors and computing technologies that began in the 1970s. But today, one of the world’s fastest supercomputers is simulating the complex systems inside nuclear reactor cores, simulations that should help make nuclear power plants more efficient.
The symbolic significance of the Obama administration’s Nov. 6 White House Summit on Nuclear Energy was a key outcome leading up to the U.N. climate conference that begins Nov. 30 in Paris. But it wasn’t the only one.
The Obama administration is convening an event Nov. 6 that will examine the role of nuclear energy in reducing carbon emissions as part of efforts to combat the threat of climate change. The event precedes the next round of international negotiations to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions being held in Paris for two weeks beginning Nov. 30.
Research conducted by the Electric Power Research Institute shows that “electricity diversity is economically beneficial and increases the resiliency and reliability of the generation fleet.”
