‘Benefits of nuclear more sustainable than renewable energy’
A number of experts addressed SA’s electricity problems during a discussion in Johannesburg today.
JOHANNESBURG - Energy experts say the benefits of nuclear are far more sustainable than renewable energy.
A nuclear round table discussion took place in Johannesburg today, where a number of local and international experts addressed South Africa's electricity problems.
President of the Science Council for Global Initiatives, Tom Blees, says there's no doubt that nuclear power could help the country in terms of sustainable energy supply.
"If you want to effectively raise the standard of living, it takes a lot of energy. Nuclear power can easily provide ample and even excess energy so that everyone can consume as much as an American per day, for instance."
