Nuclear power, electricity generated by power plants that derive their heat from fission in a nuclear reactor. Except for the reactor, a nuclear power plant is similar to a large coal-fired power plant, with pumps, valves, steam generators, turbines, electric generators, condensers, and associated equipment. nuclear energy’s potential to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the economy of technology is the solid ground on which policy makers can establish nuclear and energy policies, once the social factors have been incorporated. The rest of the book describes the fundamental issues important to a discussion of nuclear energy today.
The disaster and nuclear problems opened the door to a new energy policy, as they raised fundamental questions about the electricity system’s ability to prevent and respond to accidents. In particular, the system has had difficulty coping with.
