Nukes – Part 6
- Jan 6, 2022 4:17 pm GMT
I will start this Nukes Part by disagreeing with myself. In Nukes Part 4 I said: “A class of reactors is generally called advanced reactors. They do not use water for cooling, heat transfer, and reactivity control, but instead use some other fluid.
In spite of claims by the above companies that the above designs are intrinsically safe, I don’t buy it. I’m not going to review any advanced reactor designs in future Nukes, unless they are able to define a true breakthrough design that I can believe.
I just spent several hours researching TerraPower, and feel like they have the resources to pull off a successful design, certification and first project, and this post will review this innovative design.
Section 2 of this post will present a roadmap to decarbonization composed by a major California Utility and others. Section 3 will present major PV and/or storage projects in the U.S. that were announced recently.
