Over the last several years evidence has been mounting that a large expansion of nuclear energy capacity is indispensable for keeping global warning within 1.5°C limits. Multiple studies have confirmed that, contrary to the claims by “all-renewables” zealots, no single group of technologies can enable a timely and cost-efficient energy transition, and a diversified energy mix of low-carbon sources, including both intermittent renewables and nuclear, is needed to achieve net-zero by 2050. The most recent estimates suggest that the global nuclear energy installed capacity needs to increase 2.5-3 times from the current 370 GW to between 916 GWe and 1,160 GW by 2050.

Researchers at the US Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory (INL) have performed a new experiment that shows what happens to nuclear fuel when there is a loss of coolant accident. This is the first such test in the US in more than 35 years Previously similar experiments were only available in Russia.
