Cost and time overruns in nuclear power is one of the major barriers to widespread investment in the technology, particularly in western countries.

You need wind and solar… but you also need the stuff like nuclear to provide the baseload… to achieve low carbon with the right energy mix

“Professor Giorgio Locatelli”

Giorgio’s research into nuclear power has taken him to investigate the opportunity for implementing Circular Economy principles (sometimes discussed alongside Doughnut Economics) to deal with the issue of cost and time overruns and to deal with nuclear waste. You can watch Kate Raworth discuss her theory of Doughnut Economics here:
