Australia needs to move from “fear to facts” on small nuclear units

Siyeva Consulting director Adi Paterson says Australia needs to move from “fear to facts” about small nuclear units and from “anecdote about renewables” the ability to maintain baseload power.

“We’re seeing people realizing that intermittent renewables are completely at odds with how we actually want to get our power,” he told Sky News host Peta Credlin.

“The basic issue is that nuclear power if you say it too quickly, it can seem intimidating or too expensive.

“But if you integrate modern small modular stations into the existing network that we have…we can have these stations that are safe, always there, always available and that keeps the price of electricity down.”
