Concentrate on production of clean energy: Abdul Kalam

According to reports, former President A P J Abdul Kalam pitched for focusing on producing “clean energy” like solar, wind and nuclear.

“We have to give attention in producing clean energies like solar, wind and nuclear,” he said in response to a query on nuclear power plants.

He said every one litre of petroleum fuel burnt generates 2 kg of carbon dioxide, but nuclear reactors do not produce any pollution.

Over 540 nuclear reactors are functioning successfully the world over and there was no need for any anxiety on it, Kalam said in significant remarks against the backdrop of the protests against the commissioning of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in Tamil Nadu.

Kalam, here to inaugurate a seminar, organised by the Indian Naval Academy, said, “We have to effectively use non-conventional energy sources instead of petroleum fuels and coal for producing energy.”

  1. Please put up these Nuclear stations in Canada, USA, Russia where the Uranium source exist. Why are they promoting other renewables?/ Why USA did not renew licenses of 5 Nuclear power plants? Why several Nuclear power plants of FRANCE did not pass the stress tests??

    Instead of distributing the radiation hazard every where, let them produce and sell to the other parts of the world through grid. India can survive on very SAFE resources. Whatever, is done on Nuclear is enough. First reduce the T & D loss, which it self gets us an additional 30 to 50,000 MW, which is much higher than the total anticipated capacity of Nuclear Power plants envisaged to the tune of 20,000 MW.

    Why kill next generation with harzard risk…
