With the world looking to consolidate ventures in cleaner and greener electricity sources post-COVID-29 pandemic phase, electricity from nuclear sources offer an option. The World Nuclear Association in its study states the opportunity for governments to invest in nuclear energy, which addresses the COVID-19 crisis and manages issues such as climate change, air pollution and energy crisis, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. Somik Das, Senior Power Analyst at GlobalData, comments: “Nuclear power plants can maintain grid stability with the ability to regulate plant yield to follow demand and help constrain the impacts of seasonal variances in renewable energy yield. In the current situation, investment in nuclear energy is anticipated to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy, increased energy resilience and creation of huge numbers of long-term, high-skilled domestic employment that pay premium compensation.”
