''Nuclear Power Is The Way Forward Out Of The Energy Crisis'

  • Опубліковано 2 бер 2024
  • NEW DELHI: At the ongoing COP negotiations on climate change, 22 nations have agreed to triple nuclear power capacity. India has not joined in because it objected to a clause in the agreement on tripling renewable energy.
    Dinkar Srivastava, member of a task force set up by the think tank Vivekananda International Foundation on energy transition, argues that renewables may not be the panacea for the world's climate ills though they have advantages. But to describe renewables as affordable would not be accurate.
    Srivastava, a former diplomat, was speaking on The Gist. His point is that in his view, nuclear power is the way forward. While people often cite the cost involved in building a nuclear power plant, these are not unaffordable. Also, a lot of the hype surrounding the dangers associated with nuclear plants is overhyped, with the west driving this agenda given their proliferation fears
    India needs to rethink the business of nuclear power, so as to speed up the laggard pace of building new plants. Opening up to the private sector could be a solution. As for the buzz about small modular reactors, Srivastava says the technology is overhyped and India could do better with its 220 MW and 300MW reactors.
    Tune in for more in this conversation with Dinkar Srivastava.

    Fantastic podcast. Please have informative, educative and enlightening podcasts like this one. May be you could have one like this in the sphere of industrialization of India (present and future), education, judiciary, law and enforcement, ...etc
    Very Very helpful.

    Nuclear power is the way forward for India. That way, we could have a sustainable and clean source of energy while at the same time safeguarding the environment. India should free up nuclear energy to the private sector which will bring in investments and innovation.

      small modular reactor could be interesting. Its a cost saving measure that is quietly rising, startups are working on this.

      from their description: Age of Miracles is a narrative show that explores the complex industries that will play an important role in creating an abundant future for humanity.
      Every season, host Packy McCormick - a venture investor and writer of the popular Not Boring newsletter - brings in an expert cohost to go deep into the possibilities and challenges of making “sci-fi” dreams our reality in our lifetimes. The first season starts at the root of all progress and prosperity: unlocking 10x more clean and reliable energy by splitting and fusing atoms themselves.

    We need more of these educational videos that aren't spreading the lies and disinformation that the media has been feeding us for more than half a century.

    Thanks to our environmental activists, our nuclear power plants haven't come up with the speed and budget desired.

    Our latest PHWR has 700MWe capacity where as Korean AP1400 that is PWR using enriched uranium produce 1400 & their next gen will produce 1600 so is the case with French reactors.. even Bangladesh will have VVER1200 3+ gen russian design for their 2400MWe plant in Rooppur where as our to be commissioned Kudankulam 3&4 wil use VVER1000 ie 3 gen reactor.. our government & babus are totally failed on nuclear front.. our three stage program is just 15-20 years late... We need atleast 10 plants producing atleast 5000MWe on their own to be on some stage in nuclear power generation.. china bought french, US & russian design to build their reactor tech.. even South korean AP1400 were based on gen 2 design of Westinghouse reactors.. we need to buckle up.. inaugurating solar farm by modi is good optics but bad design considering other factors stated by gentlemen..

      We have recently out that found that we have one of the largest Uranium reserves in the world at Tummalapalle uranium mine. Already we have the largest Thorium reserve @ 30% of world reserves

      Nor does japan, korea, france or even china.. all uranium pellet/fuel production is taking place in russia..after nsg in we could just buy fuel from them & run in our own designed reactors
