Description Nuclear power trends. PDF

The author includes a comprehensive description of the various methods for generating nuclear power and evaluates the political, strategic, environmental, economic, and emotional factors involved in each method. This book offers a comprehensive assessment of the dynamics driving, and constraining, nuclear power development in Asia, Europe and North America, providing detailed comparative analysis.

The book formulates a theory of nuclear socio-political economy which highlights six factors necessary for embarking on nuclear power programs: (1) national security and secrecy, (2) technocratic.

It is a "green nuclear" book that argues that nuclear power is necessary to save the world from global warming. The author does this by taking tours with a nuclear scientist through the whole nuclear cycle from mine to power plant to waste storage repository.

The author also takes a tour of a coal plant which emphasizes how bad coal is from an 4/5. go to top Europe In Europe, nuclear projects account for the highest value, at $bn, followed by wind at $ Sinop nuclear power plant in Turkey is the second highest value project in Europe at $25bn, behind the UK’s $35bn East Anglia offshore wind farm developmentAcross the continent, government policy decisions have affected investment in power, such as Germany’s decision to.
