Major Reforms Needed for Nuclear Power to Flourish

In a guest column for Forbes, author Kazuyasu Makabe argues that, “the current regime does not do enough to enable commercial development and deployment of technologies that can be 60 times more efficient than current reactors and burn much of the fuel waste piling up around the world today,” he writes.

“For example, after almost eight years of hand-wringing, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission finally issued a rule last year creating a variable fee structure for small reactors so that they do not pay as much as the current one-size-fit-all $5 million per year per reactor, but for traditional light water reactors only.”
