What to Expect

The world’s pursuit of short-term decarbonization goals will see a surge in intermittent renewables like solar and wind energy, the cheapest low-carbon power sources at our disposal. However, this dash to meet short-term objectives presents grid reliability challenges in the long run, which can be avoided using a holistic approach that involves stable and continuous low-carbon power sources that support intermittent renewables. Nuclear energy is a high-energy-dense option that ticks this box, but despite a resurgence due to geopolitical events, fission remains an iffy subject that is both expensive to deploy and difficult to obtain public backing for; on the other hand, nuclear fusion, which is cleaner and denser than nuclear fission, faces several obstacles before it can become economically viable.  

In this Ideathon, we will explore the value proposition of nuclear energy for decarbonized power and heat generation as countries race against time to decarbonize and meet net-zero targets.
