Nuclear power: a burden or a blessing energy is one of the deciding factors for a country’s economic growth, as the population increases so does the demand for the energy. Nuclear power: for or against with a growing population, our need for electricity is an essential for modern living - nuclear power: for or against introduction though, as our fossil fuel resources continue to deplete and the emissions of greenhouse gasses continue to grow, we now face the ever growing problem of finding power sources that are both renewable and virtually clean.
Adding more nuclear to the grid could reduce some of the burden on renewables and storage, but the economics of nuclear itself could prove an insurmountable roadblock the kalinin nuclear power plant in moscow, russia.
Nuclear power: a burden or a blessing energy is one of the deciding factors for a country’s economic growth, as the population increases so does the demand for the energy india has a total of 288,664 mw installed capacity of electricity generation (as on february 29th 2016) nuclear contributes merely 2% of total electricity generation [1. Nuclear power today accounts for around 10 percent of the total electricity generation around the world this varies sharply by country — in the us the rate is about 20 percent, in russia and germany it is a bit lower than that, while some other european countries get 40 and 50 percent from nuclear reactors.
Nuclear power: a burden or a blessing when the first atomic bomb was dropped on hiroshima, japan, the world was thrust into the atomic age nuclear power had become a reality it promised to provide clean, efficient energy for centuries to come despite all of the promises, nuclear power has only been put into minimal use. Commercial nuclear power plants range in size from about 60 megawatts for the first generation of plants in the early 1960s, to over 1000 megawatts many plants contain more than one reactor the palo verde plant in arizona , for example, is made up of three separate reactors, each with a capacity of 1,334 megawatts. Nuclear power will prove to be an extremely reliable energy source in the future, as it is a well-known fact that the world’s energy sources, particularly fossil fuels, are fast heading towards depletion, as the international energy agency forecasts that, ‘if policies remain unchanged, world energy demand is projected to increase by over 50% between now and 2030’ [3. The average nuclear power plant must comply with a regulatory burden of at least $86 million annually currently, construction of a new plant begins after waiting for nearly a decade for regulatory approval.
The more nuclear power plants (and nuclear waste storage shelters) are built, the higher is the probability of a disastrous failure somewhere in the world nuclear power plants as well as nuclear waste could be preferred targets for terrorist attacks.
Nuclear reactors are only present in 31 us states and 30 countries around the globe – that leaves some room for improvement since nuclear power has literally split groups apart (fission pun intended), let’s start changing its reputation and shining a good light on this beautiful, shimmering technology as an energy source of the future while certainly not the solution to climate change, nuclear power can help to solve our energy crisis by providing cleaner, more reliable energy. Nuclear power in the european union (updated july 2018) the eu depends on nuclear power for more than one-quarter of its electricity, and a higher proportion of base-load power. Nuclear power can supply energy to a centralized system, and radioactive waste decays, overtime, to safe levels  transportation costs can be greatly reduced, and nuclear power can produced a million ties more energy than coal (using uranium-235, the isotope used in reactors.
