Atomic energy muse for US, Japan, South Korea: Nuke energy firm
Nuke power plants could become part of the future of energy, a leading energy consultant says, as more countries embrace the technology and embrace the idea of making their own nuclear power.
“I think it will be a natural progression,” said Jeffrey Belshe, a former nuclear engineer and current chief of research for the Nuclear Energy Institute at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
A nuclear power plant is a type of large-scale nuclear power station where the fuel is heated to thousands of degrees and cooled to thousands below zero.
The molten fuel is used to generate electricity.
The technology of producing nuclear power is evolving quickly.
The International Atomic Energy Agency last year named Japan the world leader in nuclear power after it completed its first nuclear power reactor in the late 1980s.
The United States is one of the world’s top nuclear power producers, producing enough electricity to power about half of the nation’s electricity needs.
The American Nuclear Society estimates that in 2020, there will be about 4,200 nuclear power plants in operation around the world, accounting for a little more than a third of total global installed nuclear capacity.
The industry has also grown rapidly in recent years as more people have embraced energy efficiency and renewables.
The world’s biggest power company, EDF, has been working on its own plans to build nuclear power stations and expects to have the technology up and running by 2025.
EDF said it is in talks with several countries about the possibility of expanding nuclear energy to other countries, including Japan and South Korea.
In Japan, nuclear power companies are also working on plans to make their own reactors.
The Japanese government has pledged to build 200 new nuclear reactors over the next 20 years, and in 2017 it set a target of building 500.
In South Korea, a government-owned energy company is exploring the possibility to build a second reactor for export.
The country plans to start commercial production of nuclear power in 2021 and export it in 2022.
But in Japan, there is a different approach to nuclear power that is more in line with a country that is also expanding its use.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said he wants to create an energy economy that is both clean and sustainable, and to use the vast amount of energy that is generated by nuclear power to fuel the country’s industrial and manufacturing operations.
Nuclear power plants produce about 30% of Japan’s total electricity, and more than half of that power comes from nuclear reactors.
Japan also plans to boost its nuclear power production, which it said in 2020 would rise to 100 gigawatts by 2030.
Belshe said he hopes to see more countries adopting the technology.
“(I hope) we will see some of these countries in the next 10 years,” he said.
