2024-02-20 Small Modular Thorium Molten Salt Reactors Are Coming To Europe

There is one issue that all nuclear plants have and that Sabine didn’t address, and that’s the huge consumption of water that all thermal plants have.  Building nuclear or any thermal plants near a source of coolant water is necessary, and that can become a major conflict when most populated areas are also near water.  Then there is the scarcity of water and droughts increasing the scarcity.

There has been the higher costs of building nuclear plants and their lower efficiency, but those were mentioned in the video.  The higher costs are a problem because the wind, solar and battery storage continue to be even less costly.  Utilities are not willing to pay higher costs for nuclear in general, so it’s even more difficult to sell them a new technology with an unproven record.

Thanks for the video, Sabine.
