The Future of Nuclear Generated Electricity

“A clean air solution is needed to mitigate the movement of carbon through electricity generation, as the current methods of generating electricity produce a significant amount of emissions, and this is expected to rise.”

Electricity is important, it is the engine that drives everyday operations and technological advances. However, our society is growing at an unprecedented rate and our electricity demands continue to rise exponentially. We are projected to use 28 terawatts worldwide in 2110, compared to the 13 TW of electricity our society uses now (Lewis, 2005).

In addition, the current generation methods used for energy produces a substantial amount of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The purpose of my research is to show that nuclear energy is a feasible method for mass production of energy in the future, as nuclear energy is a clean air generation method, it provides a substantial amount of energy, and it has the ability to utilize a closed fuel cycle enabling for a more efficient use of supplies. My research also explores the concerns that we need to address before large-scale deployment.

Since Nuclear energy is a clean air generation method, it does not release carbon dioxide emissions when in operation. A clean air solution is needed to mitigate the movement of carbon through electricity generation, as the current methods of generating electricity produce a significant amount of emissions, and this is expected to rise. Nuclear energy produces a substantial amount of energy for its footprint.

One of the largest hurdles to large-scale deployment of nuclear energy is the disposal of waste and the safety of transporting the waste. An alternate waste “reuse” method can be implemented to cut down on waste.

We cannot rely solely on nuclear power in the future, however, we will probably see more nuclear energy plants being built and more nuclear reactors deployed during the next 100 years. Though not the complete answer to solving our energy crisis, nuclear energy is a feasible method of planning for tomorrow’s energy requirements.

My research also explores the concerns that we need to address before large-scale deployment including safety reputation of nuclear energy, operational costs, and waste mitigation.

While nuclear energy has a bad reputation from the Three Mile Island and Chernobyl incidents, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is committed to a safe future of nuclear energy generation as it can play a key role in tomorrow’s energy generation.

A clean air solution is needed to mitigate the movement of carbon through electricity generation, as the current methods of generating electricity produce a significant amount of emissions, and this is expected to rise. Nuclear energy produces a substantial amount of energy for its footprint. The findings presented in my research compare a San Diego County nuclear power plant to a nearby wind farm, and explore the efficiency of both based on the amount of land the generation stations utilize.

One of the largest hurdles to large-scale deployment of nuclear energy is the disposal of waste and the safety of transporting the waste to the site. An alternate waste “reuse” method can be implemented to breed the used uranium into plutonium to cut down on waste, which is currently being done successfully to power the country of France using nuclear energy.

Electricity is important, as it is the engine that drives everyday operations and technological advances. However, our society is growing at an unprecedented rate and our electricity demands continue to rise faster than an increase. We are project to use 28 terawatts worldwide in 2110, compared to the 13 TW of electricity our society uses now.

In addition, the current generation methods used for energy produces a substantial amount of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.

My idea for exhibition is smoothie tastings!

Here is a recipe that I am considering from “smoothie-recipes.com”

The Robert Kuhl-Aid (Strawberry Banana)

An easy strawberry banana smoothie recipe usually consists of nore more than a few strawberries, one ripe banana and some type of liquid like milk or juice. An example of easy strawberry banana smoothie recipe is listed below:

Ingredients:
6 large strawberries
1 banana
1 cup of whole milk

Directions:
Just blend all ingredients till smoothy texture is formed and all fruits well blended. See how easy a mix that was, no need to add any extra flavoring because the fruits provide all the great taste in this smoothie.

We could get the strawberries from the garden, but only if we can produce a lot. If not, we will go to Trader Joes or a local farmers market and get Carlsbad based strawberries. They are in season here in California. Right now, I don’t know where I would find the bananas, but I don’t want to import them from the southern hemisphere.

See the blog post below for more information.
