2019, May, 23, 12:00:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART THREE.
The technology of obtaining energy using biogas is simple and cheap. Of course, it also pollutes the environment, but its main problem is the impossibility of generating energy on an industrial scale. This technology is applicable in agriculture on farms, but it is not possible to power a factory, a city or a village from it.
2019, May, 22, 10:50:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY. PART TWO.
Today the world production of heat, mechanical and electrical energy exceeds 50 trillion. kW / h per year or 5.7 billion kWh per hour. At the same time, more than 80% of the production of all types of energy comes from the burning of fossil fuels - hydrocarbon energy.
2019, May, 22, 10:25:00RUSSIA,RWANDA NUCLEAR
On the May 16, 2019, in Moscow, the roadmap for establishing Russian-Rwanda cooperation in the peaceful uses of atomic energy was signed.
2019, May, 21, 15:15:00SOME PROBLEMS OF WORLD ENERGY
We will not talk about hydrocarbon energy - it is expensive, uses limited fuel supplies (oil, gas, coal) and pollutes the environment very much. We consider only three types of electricity generation - nuclear, solar and oxygen.

Rosatom expects to double revenue from its overseas business, from USD6.6 billion last year to USD15 billion by 2024,
2019, May, 13, 12:00:00RUSSIA'S NUCLEAR FOR IRAN
Russian-built Bushehr 1 - the first nuclear power unit in the Middle East - was connected to the national grid on 3 September 2011. Bushehr units 2 and 3 are to be completed in 2024 and 2026, respectively.
2019, May, 8, 11:00:00U.S. URANIUM DOWN AGAIN
The United States produced 1.47 million pounds of uranium concentrate in 2018, down for the fourth consecutive year and the lowest total since 1950,
2019, May, 6, 11:47:00BRITAIN'S NUCLEAR ELECTRICITY
The UK's National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) and University of Leicester have generated usable electricity from the chemical element americium in what it believes to be a global first. The achievement is seen as a step towards potential use of americium in so-called space batteries, which may mean future space missions can be powered for up to 400 years.
2019, May, 6, 11:30:00U.S., KAZAKHSTAN URANIUM PRODUCTION DOWN
Kazatomprom's uranium production for the first quarter of 2019 was 4% down from the same period in 2018 as the Kazakh company continues with its plan to reduce production. Meanwhile, US uranium production for the quarter was 74% down from 2018.
2019, May, 6, 11:20:00FRANCE'S SAFE NUCLEAR FUEL
Framatome, the French fuel and technology company said "two full fuel assemblies" of its Enhanced Accident Tolerant Fuel would be loaded at Exelon's Calvert Cliffs plant in February 2021.
2019, May, 2, 16:20:00FRANCE'S NUCLEAR SHUTDOWN
France's ambitious energy plan will require substantial investment efforts over the next few years. Against this backdrop, the French government has expressed a willingness to propose a new remuneration framework for the existing nuclear fleet - though the timing and details of such a regulatory change remain uncertain and remote. What's more, the French state has opened the option of increasing its stake in EDF (currently 83.7%) by as early as 2019. If, or indeed when, these developments are implemented it could be credit positive.
2019, April, 29, 11:25:00EUROPE'S NUCLEAR VALUE
The European nuclear industry sustains more than 1.1 million jobs in the EU and generates more than half a trillion euros in GDP, according to a new study by Deloitte released yesterday. The study was commissioned by the European nuclear trade association Foratom to assess the contribution of the nuclear sector to the overall economy of the EU28 both today and in 2050.
2019, April, 26, 10:05:00AUSTRALIA NEED NUCLEAR
The Council argues its point by noting that nuclear energy provides 11% of the world's electricity in a reliable fashion, at a very low cost, and with zero emissions. According to the industry organization, these are the reasons behind the recent proliferation of nuclear power stations in China, the United Arab Emirates, Finland, and the United Kingdom.
2019, April, 26, 10:00:00NUCLEAR POWER FLUX DENCITY
"In California, one of the sunniest places in the world, it still takes 450 times more land to produce the same amount of electricity from solar as it does from nuclear," he said. "Why do solar panels require 17 times more material, 17 times more land chewed up for mining than what uranium requires? The answer is energy density, which is what makes nuclear power an environmentalist's story."
