With nuclear energy into a low-emission future – columns

New technologies and research are making nuclear power ever safer, cleaner and cheaper.

The contribution of energy generation from nuclear power to the global energy transition must not be underestimated, because it is of fundamental importance. There are no direct CO2 or GHG emissions and nuclear power also has one of the lowest CO2 emission rates over the entire life cycle. In this way, energy can be generated safely, reliably and without fossil fuels. With a reliability factor of at least 80 to 90 percent, nuclear energy is superior to energy generation from wind (30 to 40 percent) and also from the sun (10 to 25 percent).

In terms of costs, too, nuclear energy beats renewable energies, because storage costs, for example, are eliminated. The Chernobyl and Fukushima disasters in particular led to extensive modernization and security systems. The earth’s energy mix should be achieved with as few fossil fuels as possible; the aim is to avoid emissions. But this is possible with the help of nuclear power plants, wind, hydropower and photovoltaic technology. The world population is growing and the demand for energy is increasing.

Many countries are also simply not in a position to obtain the majority of their energy production capacity from renewable energies. In contrast, nuclear power is not influenced by weather conditions and seasonality. All of these considerations lead us to conclude that nuclear energy must play a greater role in the transition to a low-carbon world by 2050. This also includes the uranium that the power plants need. Companies like IsoEnergy or Uranium Energy have this in their projects.

Uranium Energy – – Has various, well-developed or partially approved uranium projects, for example a large project in the USA.

IsoEnergy – – is with its uranium projects in the famous Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan. The high-grade hurricane zone stands out in particular.
