Limits to deployment of nuclear power for decarbonization: Insights from public opinion

Decarbonization will require deployment of low-carbon technologies, but analysts have struggled to quantify which ones could be deployed in practice—especially where technologies have faced public opposition,” according to a new paper in Energy Policy.

This paper looks at how public opinion can affect deployment of low-carbon energies, and nuclear power in particular.

In the paper, the authors attempt “to disentangle public opposition due to the dread of nuclear power from opposition stemming from its actuarial risk.”

Powering the Clean Energy Systems of the Future

IMSR® technology is designed to provide the industrial scale energy needed to power the clean energy systems of the future. Imagine producing the transportation fuel we’ll still rely on, like gasoline, diesel and JP1 aviation fuel, but made from air, water and clean power.

PNNL: Molten Salt Reactor Fundamentals

National and international efforts to develop new sources of carbon-free energy are exploring a nuclear power concept first introduced in the 1950s and 1960s: the Molten Salt Reactor. This design is vastly different from the current light water nuclear power plant and is inspiring a fresh look at the technology.

Terrestrial Energy Partnering With L3 MAPPS For Long-Term Collaboration

Terrestrial Energy joined forces with L3 MAPPS, the leading developer of nuclear power plant simulation technology, to support the development of the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV advanced nuclear plant design with enormous potential to transform the world’s delivery of clean, low-cost and reliable energy.

CNS Conference Paper: Fuel Cycle Flexibility of Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR®

The IMSR® is being developed at Terrestrial Energy as an SMR with an output of 190 [195] MWe of electrical production. The use of a graphite moderator and a highly thermalized neutron spectrum gives multiple advantages for standard operations. The IMSR® also offers future fuel flexibility including the ability to utilize spent LWR fuel without reprocessing but by conversion to fluoride in a dry process.
