US regulators have green-lit a Small Modular Nuclear Reactor design in a water-shed moment for the nuclear power industry. US Energy Department approved the first ever small modular nuclear design for construction last week for NuScale, who hope their reactor will be in operation by 2030 in Idaho. The nuclear […]
Small Modular Nuclear Reactors – The Climate Change Solution?
Small modular nuclear reactors Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are a type of nuclear power plant that has been gaining traction in recent years as a potential solution to climate change. SMRs are small, self-contained units that can be used to generate electricity. They are much smaller than traditional nuclear power […]
The Future of Nuclear Energy Looks Bright
The future of nuclear energy Nuclear energy is one of the most controversial forms of energy production due to its potential for catastrophic accidents and its role in the production of nuclear weapons. Despite this, nuclear energy has a lot to offer in terms of clean, efficient energy production and […]
