Edition 8 – 20/11/2021

Nuclear energy teamed with renewables is the most secure low carbon, low cost  energy solution for Australia.

Dr Robert Barr’s brilliant model of Australia’s electricity generation looks at different scenarios using renewables, nuclear and a mix of both to find the optimal solution.

Only by using as much of our existing transmission infrastructure as possible and building nuclear power plants on our existing grid will we keep the costs down and ensure near term success.

Detailed analysis by Robert Barr and Robert Parker explores the economics of this energy mix and examines actual nuclear power plant options. We look at what we could build, how long it would take and possible suitable locations.

We must avoid the temptation to go for 100% renewables. This is the “hurry up and fail” pathway that will only end up with huge costs of extra poles and wires, excessive battery and pumped hydro storage and a system that’s massively complex. It will also bury us in mountains of wasted materials and environmental damage.

Nuclear energy is our most effective tool for emissions reductions. It can help to protect pristine Australian environments like Jamison Valley in the Blue Mountains
