For the second summer in a row, some nuclear power plants in Europe have been forced to temporarily shut down or reduce power output due to extreme heat waves. Some have suggested that this curtailment demonstrates that nuclear energy is ill-adapted to a warming climate.
The first national conference dedicated to bringing together key voices from across sectors to explore the commercialisation of small nuclear in the UK.
Global energy demand is rising, which means adding to our already huge challenge to replace our entire fossil fuel infrastructure: heat, power, transport. Where will that energy come from?
Joaquim Elcacho, a journalist from La Vanguardia, will moderate the discussion on the challenges posed by the transformation of the energy system to clean energy.
Finnish cities of Helsinki, Espoo and Kirkkonummi, with others possibly following, have initiated feasibility studies to replace coal and natural gas in district heating with small modular nuclear reactors (SMR’s).
Find out how small, advanced nuclear reactors be used to achieve a relatively cost-effective deep decarbonization of district heating, electricity, and transport fuels in a city of 1.5 million inhabitants.
Watch the opening sessions from the Deep Decarbonisation with Advanced Nuclear Symposium.
The Ecomodernist Society of Finland , together with partners and sponsors, will host the first ever seminar discussing deep decarbonization with advanced nuclear in Finland.
If seasonal heat storage can be deployed widely, heat pumps may provide a massive dispatchable load to balance renewables and …
