Renewables will make nuclear power redundant – Conservation Council of South Australia
SA told prioritise renewables, not nuclear 9 News, AAP , 13 Aug 15, Renewable energy should be prioritised over nuclear power, the Conservation Council of SA says.
Detailing its submission to South Australia’s royal commission into the nuclear fuel cycle, the council says the state’s future lies in renewable energy.
“It’s cheaper, safer and quicker to roll out,” the council’s chief executive Craig Wilkins said on Thursday.
The council’s submission came after the Australia Institute said renewables would make nuclear energy redundant. “Solar and wind power, right now, is cheaper than nuclear power. And unlike nuclear, renewables are getting cheaper,” the institute said.
“In the time it would take to develop an Australian nuclear power industry, it will be made utterly redundant by renewables.”…..http://www.9news.com.au/national/2015/08/13/10/09/renewable-energy-makes-nuclear-redundant
