Nuclear could provide cheap energy but would only be competitive with gas and coal if carbon pollution is priced, nuclear association says
Australia would need to adopt a carbon price for nuclear power to be economically viable, a peak lobby group for the sector says, as it welcomes a push by the Nationals for a fresh Senate inquiry into the idea.
The Australian Nuclear Association, which advocates for nuclear science and technology, said nuclear power could provide cheap, reliable, carbon-free energy in Australia, but it would only be cost competitive with gas and coal generation if pollution was priced.
I agree with @keithjpitt on nuclear. We dig it up, semi process it, send it to others to use and SA Labor believes we can take the scraps back and bury them. We believe in a reactor for medical purposes smack in the middle of Sydney BUT we must not use it for our power
Labor are getting desperate, and we are only 8 days in. This is not our policy and we have no plans to change that. https://t.co/A7TGkzP3ph
