Nuclear Power Plants
Nuclear power comes from enriching uranium and harnessing the power of an atom. Nuclear power plants are used to create nuclear power. According to one renewable energy news report, as of March 2011, there are 443 operating nuclear power plants in 47 different countries. These nuclear power plants have been creating electricity for the masses, but the safety of nuclear power plants remains in question. Earlier this year, there was an earthquake in Japan that subsequently destroyed the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear facility. The earthquake caused the Fukushima-Daiichi facility to have a nuclear meltdown, which devastated the Japanese people and the Japanese environment.
There has to be a lot of protection and security around nuclear power plants, as the power of nuclear energy is something that can be used for bad things, as evidenced by nuclear bombs. However, if nuclear power plants are controlled correctly and protected, they are a great source of renewable energy.
The costs associated with running nuclear power plants are relatively low. That makes this renewable energy source ideal. Unfortunately, nuclear power uses uranium, and it’s a resource that is becoming scarce. There are advantages and disadvantages of running nuclear power plants. Researchers are still trying to figure out the best way to use and protect nuclear energy.
