Nuclear Energy in Perspective

Prof. Dr. Kalantar-Nayestanaki from the University of Groningen dissects the complexity of nuclear technology and discusses the options, features and development steps required for meaningful integration of nuclear energy. His clear message: without nuclear power plants, stopping global warming is a distant dream. “It’s five to twelve. Drastic measures are necessary.”

Wytze van der Gaast provides an illuminating look at the economic side of the matter. What are the costs versus revenues of a nuclear power plant compared to the dynamics of renewable energy and storage? What role should nuclear energy play in the total energy mix? How important is the long-term commitment and what role does the private sector play, with possible foreign participation?
