Want Cheap & Reliable Power? Then Stop Voting for Deluded RE Obsessed Lunatics

Voters get the governments are to serve, so it’s said, which means that sympathy for their current energy woes runs thin. Voters who walked into a booth thinking they would save the planet by backing candidates and parties who promised to go all in on the grand wind and solar ‘transition’, might be suffering a […]

Reliable, Safe & Affordable: Small Modular Reactors Set to Deliver Real Energy Transition

With Europe’s renewable energy disaster laid bare for all to see, the focus is now on “real energy” – power that’s available 24 x 7, irrespective of the weather and where the Sun sits in the sky. For fairly obvious reasons, the Small Modular Reactor has captured the imagination of power-starved Europeans, with two key […]

Wind & Solar Debacle Means It’s Time To Bring Small Nuclear Reactors Onshore

SMRs are no pipe dream: 200 small nuclear reactors are presently powering 160 ships and submarines all around the world, and have been for decades. What’s on foot is a move to bring those reactors onshore and use them to shore up power grids being wrecked by the chaotic intermittency of wind and solar. STT promotes […]

Europe’s Epic Renewable Energy Fail Makes Transition to Nuclear Power Truly Inevitable

The fastest way to get people thinking about electricity, is to deprive them of it. Europe’s power pricing and supply calamity has sharpened thinking and provided a golden opportunity for engineers and free-market economists to wrest back control from ideologues and renewable energy rent-seekers. Until the Big Calm hit Western Europe last month – causing […]

Nero Fiddles: China’s Nuclear Power Push Threatens Any Country Still Toying With Wind & Solar

America’s retreat from Afghanistan has left the door wide open to an increasingly belligerent China. China takes itself very seriously on every front; whether it’s the question of military power or power, period. Building coal-fired power plants, hand over fist, the CCP couldn’t give a fig about CO2 emissions of the kind that have weather-warriors […]

Real Energy Solution: Intermittent Wind & Solar No Match For Small Nuclear Reactors

200 small nuclear reactors are presently powering 160 ships and submarines all around the world, and have been for decades. What’s on foot is a move to bring those reactors onshore and use them to shore up power grids being wrecked by the chaotic intermittency of wind and solar. STT promotes nuclear power because it […]

Starting Small: Nuclear Power’s Renaissance Begins with Small Modular Reactors

The world’s first small modular reactor (SMR) is under construction and, surprise, surprise, it’s energy-hungry China that leads the way. While China’s love affair with coal-fired power looks like a marriage that will last a lifetime, the CCP is also building nuclear plants, hand over first. And not just the 1,000MW plus industrial-scale reactors it needs […]

From Little Things Big Things Grow: Australia’s Nuclear Powered Future Starts With SMRs

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer to […]

Nuclear’s New Dawn: Small Modular Reactors Offer Ever-Reliable CO2-Free Power

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas – because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand – unlike the unreliables, wind and solar. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such […]

No Brainer: Britain’s Government Backs Nuclear Solution for Wind & Solar Chaos

It appears the penny has finally dropped. Having worked out that wind and solar will never work, the British government is now backing the development of advanced modular nuclear reactors. The idea that a modern economy can power itself on sunshine and breezes is nonsense. Not so with ever-reliable nuclear power. There are around 450 nuclear […]
