  COST FACTORS of NUCLEAR POWER

Though nuclear power plants have a high initial cost, the electricity production cost per kilowatt hour is significantly less when compared with other sources of energy. The most important factors which establish the urgency of implementing the nuclear energy is that the cost of this source of energy remains stable throughout many years whereas the cost of electricity generation by oil and gas tends to go up. The Department of Energy in its 2010 Annual Energy Outlook reports that total electricity use is expected to grow by nearly 30 percent from 2008 to 2035 highlighting on more electricity generation. Nuclear power plants, unlike intermittent sources of renewable energy, can produce electricity on average 90 percent of the time because they can operate in all weather conditions. In the United States, hydro produces electricity from 30 to 38 percent of the time and wind about 25 to35 percent of the time which have very poor reliability. So nuclear power remains as a good option. Studies conducted for the Nuclear Energy Institute indicate that construction of a new nuclear plant provides up to 2,400 jobs during construction and about 700 permanent jobs over the 60-year operating life of the plant. These jobs pay 36 percent more than average salaries in the local area. Nuclear stations also require only a relatively small amount of land, in contrast to the large areas required by solar or wind generating systems. The Darlington nuclear station, which can supply all of the electricity needs of Toronto, sits on 2 sq. km of land. Unlike hydroelectric generation, nuclear plants can be built quite close to where the electricity is needed, eliminating the need for long transmission lines.

SAFETY CONCERNS of NUCLEAR

SAFETY CONCERNS of NUCLEAR

 

Several safety measures exist to protect against any release

of radioactive material into the environment from nuclear

power plants. The radioactivity resulting from the fuel and

nuclear fission reside inside the ceramic uranium fuel pellets.

These fuel pellets are placed in zirconium fuel rods, which

resist heat, corrosion, and radiation (NEI: Safety, 1998). The

concentration of U-235 is kept low to make the possibility

if nuclear explosion virtually impossible. Also, the chemical

makeup of the fuel provides a natural control. As the reaction

heats up, it slows down, since 96% of the fuel does not fission

(NEI: The energy plant, 1998). Nuclear power plants also have

backup systems to protect against almost every imaginable

problem, including human error, equipment failure, floods,

earthquakes, and tornadoes.

Prospects of Nuclear Power Generation in Developing Countries

Prospects of Nuclear Power Generation in

Developing Countries

 

The growing demand of energy for the burgeoning population worldwide has heightened the requirement of alternative sources of energies other than fossil fuels. Though renewable energy resources like solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal appear as environment friendly, replenishing sources of energy, a comprehensive solution appears far-fetched as far as large scale production and wide-spread dissemination is concerned when long term cost factors are taken into consideration. The situation is even severe in developing countries where the ongoing depletion of fossil fuels and the unwavering rise of population have further worsened the energy crisis.

Environmental issues, long term cost factors and safety concerns have been considered with respect to the generation of electricity using nuclear power.

Nuclear energy appears to be a long term environment friendly panacea to the much talked about problem of energy crisis in Developing countries.

 

At present the developing countries account for approximately 80% of the world’s population. By 2050 it is predicted that the figure will rise to about 86%. Inadequate supply of energy hinders the socio-economic development in these countries to a great extent. At present, the energy usage in

Bangladesh is 90% gas-based and a greater 42%of this limited resource is being utilized for electricity generation drawn on the basis gas consumption in different sectors of Bangladesh on a particular day in May 2009. According to an estimate, electricity demand is likely to grow by 15% in the next 15 years, meaning the country will have to increase the capacity to 8,000 MW by 2025. Present day gas resources suggest that the country will face deficit of 142 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd) in 2011 and it will rise to 1714 mmcfd by 2019-20. The country will need to add 19,000 MW of additional power, causing the gas demand to spiral up to 4,567 mmcfd by 2019-20.Even if Bangladesh’s GDP growth remains as low as 5.5 percent till 2025. Hence dependence on gas would further exhaust this natural resource in the years to come, which would in the long run impede industrial growth and economic development. Energy from conventional sources should be searched on priority basis in developing countries. Electricity generation should be based on a source that can support large scale production, long term security and environment friendly solutions. So, productive utilization of nuclear energy has minimal impact on environmental pollution and also the costs are low as far as long term solutions are concerned. So nuclear power generation is the ultimate solution for the least developed countries to meet the growing demand of energies in the years to come.

Save Environs, Go Towards NUCLEAR

Save Environs, Go Towards NUCLEAR

The efflorescence environmental effects ensuing from the use of fossil fuels are the discharge, during the burning  action, of contents like brown ash, CO2, all oxides of nitrogen , SO2 and traces of heavy materials. Carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrogen oxide (NO2) and two chlorofluorocarbon (CFCl3 and CF2Cl2) make the ambiance hold heat and thus lead to greenhouse warming. Contamination from fossil fuels is darned for 24,000 early deaths each year in the U.S. alone. However, as with all energy sources, there is some defilement related with defend actions such as manufacturing and expatriation. The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) reckoned the average out radioactivity per short ton of coal is 17,100 millicuries/4,000,000 tons in terms of net radioactive discharge . With 154 coal plants in the U.S.A, this quantities to expelling of 0.6319 TBq per year for a scoop plant, which still does not straightaway equate to the fixes on nuclear plants , as coal emissions hold long lived isotopes and have different dispersion .In terms of dosage to a human living nearby, coal plants release 100 times the radiotoxicity of nuclear plants. NCRP reports estimated the dot to the population from 1000 MW coal and nuclear plants at 490 person rem/year and 4.8 person rem/year respectively. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates an added dose of 0.03 milli-rem per year for living within 50 miles (80 km) of a coal plant and 0.009 milli-rem for a nuclear plant for annually irradiation dosage estimation. Unlike coal-fired or oil-fired generation, nuclear power generation does not directly bring forth any sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, or mercury. So, for the countries where environmental contamination is of grave concern incorporated with cost factor, nuclear can be a better energy option for them.
