The next generation of nuclear reactors called small modular reactors (SMR’s) can be built in a factory and transported to customers by truck or barge. They could overcome Australia’s resistance to power by fission and lead to super-safe and relatively cheap sources of electricity using Australia’s vast uranium resources . Rolls Royce say theirs could be in operation by 2030.
Good to hear that a Parliamentary Enquiry will be held in Australia to review opportunities with nuclear energy.
It seems that the following generation of nuclear energy uses fusion which does not need Australia’s uranium.
