NATRIUM™ REACTOR DEMONSTRATION PROJECT WILL BRING CLEAN ENERGY AND JOBS TO THE STATE


BELLEVUE, Washington (June 2, 2021) – TerraPower, Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon and PacifiCorp today announced efforts to advance a Natrium™ reactor demonstration project at a retiring coal plant in Wyoming. The companies are evaluating several potential locations in the state.

“Together with PacifiCorp, we’re creating the energy grid of the future where advanced nuclear technologies provide good-paying jobs and clean energy for years to come,” said Chris Levesque, president and CEO of TerraPower. “The Natrium technology was designed to solve a challenge utilities face as they work to enhance grid reliability and stability while meeting decarbonization and emissions-reduction goals.”

“This project is an exciting economic opportunity for Wyoming. Siting a Natrium advanced reactor at a retiring Wyoming coal plant could ensure that a formerly productive coal generation site continues to produce reliable power for our customers,” said Gary Hoogeveen, president and CEO of Rocky Mountain Power, a division of PacifiCorp. “We are currently conducting joint due diligence to ensure this opportunity is cost-effective for our customers and a great fit for Wyoming and the communities we serve.”

If the Chinese are really doing it, it might be possible. If not this is just a funding mechanism for Western physicists.

I did not have the patience for the videos but found the ThorCon website informative.

Would love to see more nuclear energy.  Never agreed with the Greens' opposition to nuclear energy.  Absolutely hate it when BC Hydro drowns another valley in BC for electricity generation.

let's get this party started


NuScale Closes New Business Agreements to Support Deployment of Revolutionary Small Modular Reactor and Provide Cash Investment

Company has finalized separate strategic partnerships with Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction and Sargent & Lundy

“NuScale’s collaborations with DHIC and Sargent & Lundy are a strong endorsement of our company’s standing as a global leader in SMR technology,” said NuScale Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John Hopkins. “Both of these companies will provide cash investments and offer invaluable technical expertise, design support and, in the case of DHIC, manufacture key components of our groundbreaking reactor as we near the beginning of the construction phase for our first plant at the Idaho National Lab. We look forward to working with both of them to deliver America’s first SMR.”

“The strategic cooperation between NuScale and Doosan will be a foundation for our win-win collaboration not only in the US but also in the global nuclear markets,” said Mr. Kiyong Na, CEO of DHIC Nuclear Business Group. “It will give a boost to the US nuclear industries and Korean nuclear industries, and also contribute to reduction of CO2 worldwide.”

i haven't looked into this recently and i'm literally walking out the door for a much needed ten day reprieve vacation

however some really smart people are backing this, so it's got my attention

swinging for the fence?   probably

i'd watch this if i were you

especially if you are remotely interested in safe reliable energy

co2 got you worried?  

want to help lift a ton of people out of poverty?

the developing world needs a lot of energy and this looks like an option

In 1978, I returned to the Lakes region of southern Chile to work as a recreational fishing guide.  I got as far as Salta, NW Argentina near the border and could no longer continue hitchhiking as the roads were closed for a massive military mobilization.  Argentina and Chile were at the cusp of war over 3 islands in the Beagle Channel.   

I managed to hitch a ride on a freight train.  The Argentinian freight train workers were great!   That worked up to the border with Chile.  There I had to wait for a passenger train and pay passage.  I believe that crossing is called Socompa.   I took advantage of the wait to hike the nearby hills.  Spectacular.

Within a few the days the Pope brokered a truce and ultimately a peace deal though I am shaky on details.   I have some colour slides of Argentinian soldiers and Chilean carbineros  (Chile's border police) arm in arm with big smiles on their faces.   Everybody said that war would not happen.  It did not.

And they can dig it all up to get lithium to use in batteries for your solar panels.

This Environmentalist Says Only Nuclear Power Can Save Us Now

Michael Shellenberger believes the Green New Deal’s focus on wind and solar is a waste of time and money.


Watch the above video to learn more about the history of nuclear energy and to hear more from Shellenberger about his case for nuclear power, as well as his response to concerns about radiation, nuclear weapons, and nuclear's economic viability. The video also features solar energy advocate Ed Smeloff, who served on the Sacramento Municipal Utilities District board during the shutdown of California's Rancho Seco nuclear plant. Smeloff argues that nuclear power simply can't compete in the marketplace.

 
Sadly at this point of technology this is accurate.{#Sad}

 

shellenberger's delivery could be better

but overall i'm pretty excited and hopeful that good things are coming

there's a lot of talent and resources busy in the energy sector

market forces (mass production and its corollary mass consumption) should bring down prices and accelerate innovation

small modular reactors are on the table 

and solar is getting better too (the prices have dropped like a rock)

i think chile just signed a deal that would make solar some of the cheapest unsubsidized energy on the planet (or so they claim)

unfortunately ignorance and stupidity wielded by politicians is nothing new

the harm done, the distortions created by foolish political interventions in competitive progressive markets is enormous

it is no different in financial markets

the good news is that this is only a state level politician

where do we go from here? how do we begin to unwind disastrous policy?

the best thing politicians can do is set up a basic framework to prevent force and fraud and get out of the way
