Prioritising Nuclear energy UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • For India to be a developed country by 2047 and be on track to achieve net zero — or effectively zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2070 — it must significantly prioritise investments in nuclear energy and expand related infrastructure - IIM-Ahmedabad report

  • Currently, nuclear energy makes up only 1.6% of India’s energy mix

  • The best case of study showed emissions in 2070 fell to 0.55 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide (‘net zero’ scenario).

Why in news

  • This translated to nuclear power rising five-fold from today’s levels to 30 GW (gigawatt) by 2030 and 265 GW by 2050.

  • Currently, the Central Electricity Authority say solar energy accounts for 16% of India’s installed generation capacity and coal 49%

  • To achieve these idealistic figures for nuclear energy would require a doubling of investments as well as the assumption that uranium, a critical fuel but restricted by international embargo, is available in necessary quantities.
