20 Nov Nuclear Energy Podcast – Low cost and a proven low emissions
Nuclear Energy Podcast with 2GB’s Luke Grant on Australia Overnight
For the same money nuclear energy can deliver power prices at half those of NSW Energy Minister’s $32 Billion renewable energy scheme.
The renewable energy scheme would deliver only mediocre emissions reductions at about half our existing levels or about 400gr CO2/kWh.
For the same money, a fleet of 25 small nuclear power plants using our existing grid would get emissions down below 50 gr CO2/kwh or around 10 times better than renewables.
Similar outcomes would occur in most other Australian states.
On this podcast Rob Parker speaks with 2GB’s Luke Grant on Australia Overnight about such a nuclear energy scheme and how our entire state could benefit.

The $32 billion renewables plan for NSW announced by Matt Kean would, if implemented, consign our state to high power prices, entrench gas use and expensive storage and deliver only a modest reduction in carbon emissions.
