Thorium molten salt(Gen‐IV)reactor technology overcomes the severe problems of conventional uranium PWR plants.
Materials development in molten salt neutronic effects enable high ramp‐rate load following that complements solar PV renewable production.
Enable solar and wind to be considered into a reliable energy source. Solar that gets block by clouds or wind variability messes up the grid.
Utilities have been mandated in some areas to have solar and wind power but they are also mandated or contracted to provide stable power. A reliable load following system is what is needed and thorium molten salt reactors will fulfill that need.
