Russia to build four new nuclear reactors

The whys of the slow pace of Indian nuclear power development

Nuclear Asia
Following the 2015 climate change conference in Paris (CoP 21), among India’s stated goals to reduce the impact of global warming include achieving a 40 percent electricity generation capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030 and 63,000 MW of installed nuclear capacity by 2032.

On the issue of higher safety, lower costs of small reactors

Nuclear Asia
On the issue of the enhanced safety and cost efficiency provided by small and modular (SMR) reactors, making these more suitable for Asian countries, various research has shown that SMRs, essentially by virtue of their design, provide increased safety by eliminating many of the factors that provoke accidents.

Nuclear Asia
Continuing with the focus on nuclear energy while the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic rages across the globe, highlighting starkly, at the same time, the implications of climate change, the point of departure here is that nuclear is the only clean energy source that generates electricity 24X7.

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic raging across the globe has starkly highlighted the urgency for sustainable develoment by cutting emissions to reduce global warming that is destroying natural habitat, bringing animals in closer contact with people and facilitating, thereby, the frequent outbreak of zoonotic diseases, which has culminated in the deadly COVID-19.
