    There is nothing more intoxifying like a deck of powerporn sliding up you're screen while wading through a radioactive and grammatically toxic mess.

    Well, bully for the Dutch! Someone is finally realizing that PV, Windpower an IEC magnet motors aren't going to get us where we'd like to be.

    Good science, but stupid economics. Nuclear power can no longer compete with renewables in terms of costs. Maybe useful science for other future purposes like medical applications or power on remote astroids.

    Renewables won't fill the current energy demand. Not even close.

    @ping1400

    When renewables are not producing enough electricity gas a fossil fuel has to be used, these small on off generators are designed to replace gas and/or coal.

    Nuclear power is well-suited to baseline demand. Hydropower also.

    The rest, not so much.

    Smartie grid. When all our devices are part of the grid and can breathe freely, maybe we can abridge the baseline demand and soak up enough peak to bridge the... night?

    A smart grid with bidirectional variable rates depending on demand and supply could make the case for nukes if there is entrepreneurial incentive to follow that path.
