Index / Solar Energy / Economics
Henning Gloystein and Aaron Sheldrick claim that one by one, Japan is turning off the lights at the giant oil-fired power plants that propelled it to the ranks of the top industrialized nations. With nuclear power in the doldrums after the Fukushima disaster, it is solar energy that is becoming the alternative, but this is a gross mi-representation.

Solar power is set to become profitable in Japan as early as this quarter, according to the Japan Renewable Energy Foundation (JREF), freeing it from the need for government subsidies and making it the last of the G7 economies where the ... More →

Stefan Lis reports that rare-earth experts have called for more exploration of the sector to bridge the demand-supply deficit of these elements due to increasing needs the world over. India has enormous potential in the sector as it has a long coastline rich in deposits but it has to ramp up its indigenous production, Prof Sidney Ribeiro, Institute of Chemistry, Sao Paulo State University, UNESP, Brazil said.

In this regard, he said private sector can play a crucial role in managing the demand-supply deficit. Prof Stefan Lis, Head, Rare Earth Department, and Adam Mickiewicz Univers... More →

Lawrence Williams blogs that while the uranium price may well have been one of the best performing over the past nine months or so, it should be remembered that this is a period of recovery from an all-time low price in real terms but then such times may well prove to have provided the best opportunity to get back into the commodity. Thus, the uranium round-table panel event at the London 121 Mining Investment conference was well attended as investment professionals sought to get a handle on the latest prospects for the nuclear metal.

It is worth recalling that the price reached an... More →

Index / Climate Change (Global Warming or Cooling)
The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry reports that public discussion of scientific topics such as global warming is confused by misuse of the term skeptic. The Nov 10, 2014, New York Times article - Republicans Vow to Fight EPA and Approve Keystone Pipeline -referred to Sen. James Inhofe as a prominent skeptic of climate change. Two days later Scott Horsley of NPR Morning Edition called him one of the leading climate change deniers in Congress. These are not equivalent statements.

The members of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry are concerned that the words skeptic and denier have b... More →

Jo Becker and Mike of The New York Times reported that the headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir Putin latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin -Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic-energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the largest uranium producers and brought Putin closer to his goal of ... More →

Russian President Vladimir Putin is to sign an agreement today, during a state visit to Moscow by Argentine President Cristina Fernndez de Kirchner, that paves the way for Rosatom to build a sixth nuclear reactor in the South American country.

Kirchner said in a statement yesterday that the agreement reflected the leaders shared belief that constructing nuclear power plants will be a trend across the world thanks to the appeal of low-cost electricity generation. Nuclear power is growing in prestige in the world, and it is cheaper, cleaner and less subject to external vulnerabilities... More →

Matthew Bandyk reports that as NuScale Power LLC tries to navigate the Nuclear Regulatory Commission review process to become the first developer of the small modular reactor design in the U.S., the developer of the portable reactors has to confront some big numbers. The Oregon-based developer has more than 500 personnel working on the regulatory approval of the small modular reactor, or SMR, design, dealing with over 210,000 NRC safety and other requirements and keeping track of 1,360 relevant documents, NuScale representatives said at an April 21 public meeting at NRC's headquarters in Rockv...

Stu Hamilton, of the Hydrology Corner Blog, comments that a recommended read for anyone interested in uncertainty is Keith Beven (2015) Facets of Uncertainty - Epistemic Uncertainty, Non-stationarity, Likelihood, Hypothesis Testing, and Communication, a paper appearing the Hydrological Sciences Journal, DOI - 10.1080/02626667.2015.1031761.

There are many points that Keith Beven makes that Hamilton strongly agrees with, but he focuses on one question Beven uses as a section heading - Can we talk of confidence rather than uncertainty in model simulations? Keith Beven asks about model ... More →

Index / Uranium (Nuclear Minerals) / Nuclear Power - Economics, Design, and Industry
Sharryn Dotson reports that breeder reactors are not a new idea in the global nuclear industry, but the technology has not been widely used in the U.S. compared to other countries. The Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois is widely considered the trailblazer in developing fast-reactor technology, and other nations have followed suit by using the Argonne design as a starting point in developing their own breeder reactor technologies.

Though U.S. companies tend to lean toward light and boiling water reactors to power their plants, many are starting to look for newer ways of both ge... More →
