Email of the day on generation IV nuclear reactors

Here are some exciting news on collaboration between a US nuclear lab and privately held Terrestrial Energy, which seems to have the most advanced molten salt nuclear reactor concept available. This is encouraging news for those of us eagerly awaiting commercialization of new nuclear!

Fyi and disclosure I am invested in Terrestrial Energy.


Eoin Treacy's view

Following on from the above piece, there is no denying that the molten salt reactors currently considered generation IV technology hold a great deal of promise as does the fusion solution touted as possible by Lockheed Martin and others. However, considering the lead time to commercialisation it will be the decade beyond 2020 where some of these promises are fulfilled. 

These advances help to enhance further the future of abundant energy we envisage as the most probably result of a decade of high pricing.
