Features of nuclear development

By D. Rozanov

According to the assessment of the World Nuclear Association (WNA) and the IEA Agency for the implementation of the Paris Agreement (limiting global warming to only two degrees Celsius before 2050), the world needs to put into operation 1000 GW of nuclear power capacity for the period (until 2050). This will require the connection to the network of up to 35 new nuclear power units per year (now only 10-15 power units per year are connected). Atoms have even come up with their name for "green energy". This is nuclear energy plus renewable energy sources.

Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan need to redirect investment flows as combustibles’ future spells doom

The wider Caspian region, which comprises the Caspian littoral states and the lands to their east, is sitting on a vast riches of subsoil resources of which combustibles are made to quench the world’s ever increasing thirst for energy. Those who dedicate their lives and/or cash to such resources hardly ever miss an occasion to stress the need for them, downplaying the growing importance of alternative resources, located not under but on and above the earth’s surface and being infinite.
