The Carnival of Nuclear Energy 145 is up at Atomic Power Review
ANS Nuclear Cafe looks at potential nuclear plant closures and what could be done to stop them from closing
Kewaunee may not be the last plant to close for purely economic reasons. Many experts are saying that several other small plants in merchant power markets (including Vermont Yankee, Fitzpatrick, Nine Mile Point, Cooper, Ginna, Indian Point, and Clinton) are at risk of closing, due to weak demand and continuing low natural gas prices.
* Staffing is higher than it needs to be.
* Natural gas prices will not stay as low as they are now
Nextbigfuture – General Atomics calls for game changing nuclear energy technology
Nextbigfuture – Unit 1 of the Hongyanhe plant in Liaoning province in northeast China has been connected to the electricity grid.
