Dr Michael Rushton has had his latest article published in Nature Index. The article is titled “Exploring small nuclear to plug the energy gaps” and can be found in the 2022 Nature Energy Index. The journal focusses on how the global energy crisis lends urgency to many nations’ plans to decarbonise, shifting from fossil fuels to greener options.
Why stop at power generation? Here, Michael JD Rushton and William E Lee suggest that small modular and other advanced reactors could also be employed to generate heat for use in homes and industry, as well as to create clean hydrogen. Experience of both exists in Europe and Russia.
