Shutting down of Diablo Canyon nuclear plant can be extended

Technology Inceptions

A team of researchers at MIT’s Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems, Abdul Latif Jameel Water and Food Systems Lab, and Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research; Stanford’s Precourt Energy Institute; and energy analysis firm Lucid Catalyst LLC have analyzed the potential benefits of the nuclear plant if its operation were extended to 2030 or 2045. In the analysis it was also found that the nuclear plant could simultaneously help to stabilize the electricity of California and can provide desalinated water to supplement the state’s chronic water shortages, and provide carbon-free hydrogen fuel for transportation.  A possible approach, according to experts in California is replacing conventional cars and trucks with vehicles powered by fuel cells which consume hydrogen. Hydrogen has to be produced from a primary energy source. Nuclear power, through a process called electrolysis, can do that quite efficiently and in a manner that is carbon-free.
