Small Solid Core Reactors for Safe, Reliable Fission Energy

For grid scale electricity production without CO2 emissions, there are several options. Wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal are all viable technologies, but they are dependent on proximity to key resources, namely water, wind or sunshine. Nuclear fission has offered clean power generation without these constraints for over 60 years, and a new generation of small reactors promises to remove the disadvantages of waste disposal and cost associated with older reactor designs. 

James Walker, engineer & CEO of NANO Nuclear Energy describes a novel solid core reactor design in conversation with Jim Anderton.
