lnternational cooperation is essential for safe use of nuclear energy: Bangladesh envoy
In a telephone interview last week, Nuclear Asia spoke with the Bangladesh Ambassador to Austria and the country’s Permanent Representative to the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Muhammad Abdul Muhith, on how international cooperation in developing countries, including Bangladesh, can play an important role in the safe and sustainable use of nuclear technology.
The whys of the slow pace of Indian nuclear power development
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.
Doing away with diesel using small modular reactors
Deep decarbonization – it’s so easy to say, and yet it is going to be so difficult to achieve.
Nuclear power and the energy transition
Addressing climate change will require an energy system transformation so enormous that we cannot afford to say “no” to any technology that reduces CO2 emissions.
India needs low-carbon energy partnerships to power its rise
One of this century’s great success stories could well be India, a diverse country with huge untapped human and economic potentials.
On the issue of higher safety, lower costs of small reactors
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.
Considerations for safer and less costly nuclear energy
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.
