The real-world benefits offered by zero emissions advanced nuclear technologies in addressing climate change while creating high-tech jobs in Victoria are highlighted in a new report by the Victorian Legislative Council’s Environment and Planning Committee. In a detailed discussion of the Nuclear Activities (Prohibitions) Act 1983, the inquiry stops short of recommending the repeal of Victoria’s outdated prohibition on nuclear energy and uranium mining while acknowledging the future importance of a technology-neutral approach to reducing emissions. For example, as the Committee’s Chair Cesar Melhem MLC notes in the report: ‘It is this need to shift towards low-emissions power generation that the question of nuclear power has been raised in recent years’ and ‘It will be interesting to see over the next few years whether new nuclear technologies, such as SMRs which are in the final stages of development, change the costing of nuclear energy over time.’ The inquiry heard from industry, unions including the AWU and CFMMEU, NGOs and individuals that support a pragmatic regulatory regime for nuclear technology in Victoria. Advanced nuclear technologies like small modular reactors (SMRs) could help Victoria retain and grow a strong industrial sector.

pamz: Is this a good place to put a question??? This board seems to have been well organized and energetic. What's happened? I know message boards can lose energy...is that it? Or, was it something else? Did the furious finger of GAWD strike you?
