Senator Sam McMahon enthuses about Generation IV nuclear reactors for the Northern Territory

Nuclear must be part of debate on Australia’s future energy needs: McMahon, Goulburn Post, Chris McLennan  9 Nov 20, “………….. Northern Territory Senator Sam McMahon says…… she writes in a newsletter published on the weekend.

“In fact, when it comes to emissions, reliability and power output, nuclear is a clear winner.

“…. it is the emerging Generation IV nuclear reactors that I believe should be given greater consideration.”……….

“These facts are true of existing nuclear power stations, however, it is the emerging Generation IV nuclear reactors that I believe should be given greater consideration.”…….

“Currently, there are no SMR’s in service anywhere in the world but there are several projects being developed in Europe, China and the USA. The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation monitors advances in the various technologies and regularly reports on its findings. Australia is in a position to not only observe and learn, but also to contribute to this growing body of knowledge and technology.

“The NT is uniquely positioned to benefit from a nuclear industry in Australia, should we decide to go down that path.”  https://www.goulburnpost.com.au/story/7004671/nuclear-must-be-part-of-debate-on-australias-future-energy-needs-mcmahon/?cs=9397
