  • In a big push to nuclear energy to contribute hugely to a sustained energy mix of the country in future, the Government of India is contemplating to double the nuclear power generation capacity to about 14,000 MW. However, there is no plan to hand over the total energy load to nuclear in the near future.

  • In the present times, when nations are faced with energy challenges, Nuclear energy is witnessing a renaissance around the world. UK, where energy crisis is hitting the consumers for years now, new nuclear energy plants under construction could contribute significantly to energy supply. With the tangible growth in population, older oil, gas and nuclear energy plants had closed down. In the face of exponential population growth, a large proportion of older oil, gas and nuclear power stations have closed. By 2030, 35pc of our current energy capacity will no longer exist and as per the Government estimates, energy reforms will cost up to £110 billion over the coming years. So, amid dwindling supplies and growing demand, it’s estimated that an extra 60GW of energy will need to be generated to break even.

  • UAE’s is set to take lead the middle east into the world of peaceful nuclear energy shortly as its Barakah power plant enters its final and crucial stage of construction. This will certainly add one more member to the galaxy of nations making peaceful use of nuclear to meet the energy challenges and also bolster its economy.

  • When a debate is triggered on the nuke disasters and its effect on generations, the nuclear bashers always step out to bat for the conventional sources, like coal and gas, and the renewables like solar, wind and hydro-electric options to meet the demands of the sector. But they conveniently forget the repercussions and their impact in effecting climate change and global warming.

  • Can accidents be ever predicted? Certainly not. Road accident, air crash or for that matter the natural disasters can never be foretold. Whenever such incidents occur, they result in large-scale destruction and loss of life despite all the safety and security measures in place. Similarly, exceptional paranoia should not be attached to nuclear mishaps which is also beyond predictability. Nuclear should not be subjected to discrimination.

  • Taking the ties to the next level and as an extension to the nuclear coordination between the two countries, India and Russia signed a framework agreement enabling construction of the 'third stage' of the Kudankulam nuclear power plant, including an intergovernmental credit protocol for implementation of the project.

  • Nuclear power has long been in use for therapeutic purposes. Radiations have the tendency to kill the body cells and tissue. Physicians use this quality to treat different forms of cancers as radiation is capable of killing the cancer cells faster than the other surrounding tissue. Not only this, the use of nuclear in medicine is advancing with a fast pace and radioactive substances in small amount help diagnose and treat various ailments more effectively with precision.

  • Of the three zones developed around nuclear power plants, the outer-most zone falls at the minimum distance to a high population center. A multi-layer protection is thus provided to ensure safety of the adjoining inhabited areas of a nuclear power plant. This whole arrangement shields the biodiversity in case of a radioactive emission. If at all an accident happens, it progresses slowly and there are certain ways to control the different stages of progression. In such a scenario, there is always adequate time to apply counter measures in public domain in terms of sheltering, iodine tablets and ultimate evacuation. The evacuation of thousands from in and around Fukushima plant during the March, 2011 tsunami disaster is an example. However, apart from playing a buffer zone, the protective sheath against any radioactive emission, the exclusion zone is a quintessential dense forest area, the serenity of which is broken often only by the sweet calls of koel or the humming of forest bees.

  • For many of us, the mere reference of a nuclear power plant resurrects a composite picture of the industry, heavy machines, reactors, smoke billowing tall chimneys and a similar scenario. But very few are aware about a zone with kind of Utopian biodiversity around all nuclear power plants. Called ‘Exclusion Zone’, it could undoubtedly be a nature lover’s delight, rich in biodiversity and full of natural beauty, serving actually as a safety cushion to the surroundings of the plant.

  • In a big push to country’s nuclear power programme, 10 units of indigenous Pressurized Heavy Water Reactors (PHWR) of 700 MW each will go a long way in enriching country’s nuclear mix. A fully home grown initiative and a flagship ‘Make in India’ projects, it would ultimately lead to an overall augmentation of India’s nuclear power generation capacity.
