Can nuclear power secure a path to net zero?

Jack Marley writes in The Conversation about nuclear power’s role in reaching net zero.

The C3 Take
  • As countries push for more sources of green energy, nuclear power must not be overlooked.
  • Nuclear is our safest, cleanest, and most reliable source of energy.
  • Nuclear energy can also provide critical baseload power for renewables when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.
  • Nations around the world should look to nuclear energy to play a critical part in reaching decarbonization goals.

“Nuclear power generation can be dialled up to cover gaps in supply from renewable sources, a job that coal and gas generators are often called upon to do now. Another low-carbon way to do this is to build batteries big enough to store the electricity generated by green sources.”
