RE: The Green Case for Nuclear Power
Sat 21:01
At the end of the day we either burn fossil fuels or use uranium for the base load of the electric grid.

Will we go with hydrogen cars instead of electric cars?

I was reading an article on Norway importing Hydrogen to to Japan the other day, as they replace their oil based economy with hydrogen and hydro produced electricity.

As the article states China and India are going for nuclear and a lot depends on what the USA decides to do.

This Ocasio Cortez lady is quite a character, what is she intending to do start rationing electric in the USA whilst China and India pass them by.

Start living in the real world matnotan, renewables are not going to make the grade and a diversified power grid will be the way forward for most counteries or regions if its the eu.

Anyway, how is the paw paw patrol going are you keeping it in a straight line?

Broxy old boy I was brought up on football internet forums, a slightly different beast. Insulting posters supporting other teams was par for the course, their personal hygiene, parentage and sexual proclivities all fair game. Some habits die hard when confronted with such cock wombles!

RE: The Green Case for Nuclear Power
Sat 20:23
Flamanville, the new nuclear plant under construction in northern France, was intended as the showcase for the EPR but it is now more than eight years late and more than €7bn over budget.

The EPR at Hinkley Point in Somerset is also years behind schedule and even more expensive. If and when Hinkley finally comes on-stream, British consumers will be burdened for decades with the price of the electricity produced there index-linked for 35 years from the exorbitant level of £92.50 per megawatt hour originally set in 2013.

The crucial economic problem for the industry is that the high cost of new nuclear has become more visible because of the sharp fall in the costs of wind and solar power over the past decade. With storage technology also advancing, large-scale alternative supplies of low-carbon energy are becoming available which carry none of the construction risks associated with nuclear plants.

Consumers and politicians may not understand all the complexities of the energy business but they do understand prices, just as investors know that construction delays and cost overruns mean lower returns. The financial problems associated with Flamanville and Hinkley Point have probably done more damage to the prospects of nuclear power than Fukushima.

The authors of the IEA report take no account of the potential for either wind or solar to continue to fall in cost and, with storage, to be able to provide large volumes of low-cost low-carbon energy in the future. The report does not mention the trend towards distributed supplies of electric power which is reducing the need for large-scale centralised production.

Clearly, if nuclear does fade major investment in other sources of supply and in the transmission system will be needed but the IEA’s conclusion relies on a series of negative assumptions about the development of renewables. A nuclear fade is perfectly possible and could come more rapidly than predicted by the IEA. But it is also perfectly manageable.

The shift to a low-carbon economy will come when technology produces low-cost power that is competitive against all other potential sources. If nuclear can do that it will win. But if it remains uncompetitive, a fade is inevitable.

Nuclear power will fade unless it becomes more competitive

Nuclear power is in danger of fading away as a significant source of electricity supply. The fade will be gradual but is already evident in Germany and the US and the trend is likely to be followed in France, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium. In many other areas, existing plants are ageing and while the working lives of some stations will be extended many may not be replaced. In some cases the process will take decades — in France it will start in the 2030s and South Korean plans stretch to 2060.

The rate of decline in the US will be determined by court action against subsidies to the nuclear sector and by attempts to change existing legislation to limit support for renewables.

These shifts will be balanced in part by growth in China and India and perhaps in the Middle East. In Japan, the industry will recover some market share as plants closed after the Fukushima disaster reopen. However, the trend is clear: nuclear will provide a gradually reducing share of total global energy demand.

The authors of a new report from the International Energy Agency spell out what is happening in detail and regard the fade (their phrase) as deeply regrettable — a surprising conclusion from an organisation that is usually impeccably neutral between different technologies.

Their view is driven by the assumption that nuclear power is essential to the energy transition and the move to a lower carbon economy. Nuclear could certainly be part of that process but, as the report makes clear, there are several good reasons why neither consumers nor investors are rushing to take the nuclear option.

Serious accidents from Three Mile Island in the US in 1979 to Fukushima in 2011 raise the perception of risk. In normal operations nuclear is a safe source of power. But the record of accidents, each accompanied by confusion and poor communication by industry and governments, has undermined public confidence. The new drama documentary on Chernobyl being screened by Sky Atlantic will only reinforce the concerns.

The sector’s problems are not limited to fear — rational or irrational. Economics are equally important. The imposition of gold-plated regulations that fail to recognise different levels of risk is one barrier.

But the real issue lies with the industry. Standardised programmes of nuclear development using relatively simple reactors can be very cost effective and have provided the basis for the success of the industry in France in the past and now in China. Those in the business have, however, been tempted into developing large-scale reactors such as the European Pressurized Reactor whose construction is complex.

In my ignorance I had to google that one up, was it a type of soup, a popular donkey name or a position to assume when using the paw paw potty.

I’ve been doing a bit of research on the hydrogen economy and the electric vehicle developments.

Maybe I write up my thoughts, but I can’t even see that ‘fading’ the demand for Uranium.

The growing populations in China and India over the next few decades will demand more and more energy which has to be accommodated by what?

The Green Case for Nuclear Power
Tue 16:56
The FT today......

Extreme weather drove the growth in energy demand last year to its highest level since 2010, triggering warnings of a “vicious cycle” fuelled by reliance on heating and cooling systems that could worsen the world’s carbon emissions crisis.

Energy group BP said in its closely watched annual market review that energy consumption grew 2.9 per cent in 2018, led by China and the US, despite modest economic growth and strengthening oil and gas prices.

The rise spurred a 2 per cent increase in carbon emissions, the fastest since 2011 and equivalent to increasing the global passenger car fleet by a third, or just under 400m.

“If there is a link between the growing levels of carbon in the atmosphere and the types of weather patterns observed in 2018, this would raise the possibility of a worrying vicious cycle,” Spencer Dale, BP’s chief economist, is expected to say in a speech to launch the report on Tuesday afternoon."

Renewable Energy cannot supply enough reliable electricity to stop this....

Checked out Spain's version of Gridwatch Matnotan and guess what at time of looking 22% of electricity generated on the mainland from Nuclear Power Stations.....so do not see any fade anytime soon....have you any idea how renewable energy sources could replace Nuclear Power on a cold winters night in Spain? No solar, not much wind....then what?

Always good to have a Plan B.

In the Court proceedings, I guess we infer that the govt responded in April/May to the BKY/PP appeals, and that we are now in the period when the Court is considering the legality of the CSN appointments. On the face of it they're clearly illegal to a layman's mind because of overt appointee conflict of interest (eg Castejon). The court might take several months to give its ruling perhaps. It's interesting that BKY's PR machine is keeping quiet about the reasons for the appeal. Hopefully we'll end up with an unbiased good quality analysis and report from CSN, and with a CSN board that will do the job that...er...the CSN board is supposed to do.

We should also know soon what El Guapo's new coalition will look like. Hopefully whoever's in it will shortly be considering a properly produced report from a properly constituted CSN, and also listen to what the local community wants. Small wonder the majority of municipal councillors are from the supportive PP, even though its broader politics is not for everyone. BKY believe the overwhelming majority of the people of Retortillo want the mine.

Very positive RNS; licenses for prospecting for battery metals have been granted.

It will be VERY interesting to see if there is continued opposiition to the mine at central government level if this can be progressed. You would think a local supply of battery metals would fit in well with the government's green energy policy, wouldn't you..

"The Company has also been awarded three new licenses covering an area of 266 km2, located 40 km from Retortillo.

Previous geochemical analysis using ionic leach methodology has shown the licence areas to be prospective for the battery and EV metals lithium, cobalt, tin, tungsten and rare earth elements. The company is accelerating plans to further define, and test drill these targets."

What is more with the climate found in Spain with no hard winters electric vehicles will be more popular. I don't fancy a cold English winter and heating the car up on a battery alone, whereas such a problem does not exist in Spain.

Just how on earth are they going to get the electricity to charge up their cars in 2030, they need a base load.

At some point this socialist government will just collapse when they have no answer to the economic issues that confront them, its almost as if they are putting their heads in the sand.

Uranium will be needed as a base energy to power the electricity grid.

At some point the eu and spain will do a security assessment and conclude they will require a secure source of Uranium within their territory.
