Nuclear power reduces carbon footprint even faster

The first ten reactors in Sweden was built in 15 years. They gave according to Wikipedia, a available power of the 10,000 megawatt (MW). A little later, was built during the five years two additional reactors at the together 2.200 MW. These 12 reactors had the potential to produce 80 terawatt hours (TWh) per year.

According to a report on Energiföretagens site Analysis.see, it is quite possible that in five years build a new reactor if of 1,100 MW (or more if you build more than one reactor at the same time). This fits with the very good margin in the 20 years available under the current climate plan. Where has the wind a lot, for the same length of time has not been reached no further than to 17 TWh per year, according to the Facts.

Nuclear power is profitable in the basis on equal terms, without subsidies and extra charges may apply. The price of electricity was historically at its lowest when we built the 12 reactors, and until the incorporation of the electricity market changed the picture. A new nuclear power plant of the type Oskarshamn 3 would today cost around 45 million sek per available MW. The corresponding figure for wind power is 136 million, three times as high, taking into account that the real effektbidraget according to the Swedish national Grid is only 11 per cent of the installed power. Unilateral subsidies make the price of electricity at times so low that no power generation is profitable for any type of power.

According to the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) need to all available low-carbon power sources to cope with the 1.5-gradersmålet. In their latest report outlines four possible scenarios which all have sizeable contribution from nuclear power. This is resisted by the current government's energy policy, which is based on false perceptions and can endanger the whole of Sweden's power supply. Only hydro power is not enough for Sweden when the wind and solar do not deliver. Statistics show that when there is no wind, it blows, it's often not in the neighbouring countries either. In addition, requires a strong network to vindsnurrorna should be able to ”keep up” in frequency, because it does not set the requirement that they should have the equipment for power regulation. The more water - and nuclear power is available in the network, the more wind power the network can sustain without the power is removed. Here, you can actually almost talk about symbiosis.

in the area of climate is to ensure that the existing operational and climate-neutral power plants do not need to be closed. There is no reason to further delay this klimatåtgärd.
