[cdn-nucl-l] AECL PHEV Contest
"Long before hydrogen becomes feasible, the less-expensive energy
carrier "electricity" will have already captured much of the US
transportation market (page 6). Therefore, the US nuclear energy
community might be well advised to sidestep hydrogen and focus, over
the next several critical decades of nuclear renewal, on our
fundamental issues: passive safety, proliferation resistance and
closing the fuel cycle to ensure that nuclear energy continues to be
available, viable and sustainable as the lowest-cost provider of
Nuclear Energy and The Future
The Hydrogen Economy or the Electricity Economy?

Based on the above article I think AECL really has to get moving on a
whole solution that will result in more reactors being built. They
should be doing things like giving away free PHEVs to people who win
an essay contest about the benefits of nuclear electricity.
Clean, quiet, electric cars running on quietly delivered power
produced by clean, quiet reactors. What a world we could have!
AECL should also conduct a demonstration of heated streets that do not
require salting and plowing to keep clear in winter.
