Is the Energy System Really Ready for Sustainable Energy?
Browse Time : 992
Nuclear power is the only other technology currently available to produce electricity with a negligible amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are part of a new generation of nuclear power plant designs. It is considered a base load power technology which must produce energy continuously 24/7 to be economical. After testing, researchers conclude that the coupling of SMRs with a desalination plant is a realistic solution to perform efficient load following in nuclear power generation. However, the widespread adoption of this promising technology is unlikely to happen in the short-term.
