Before renewable sources such as wind and solar can contribute significantly to the overall energy mix, massive electricity storage is needed to turn the raw power into dispatchable power.
Bond Calloway, Sarah Widder
The current U.S. reactor fleet produces 2,100–2,400 ton/yr of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). After 50-plus years of nuclear power generation, 64,000 tons of SNF has accumulated in temporary storage at the reactor sites. How did we get where we are, and...
