UNCLEAR to NUCLEAR
The Union Cabinet on May 17, 2017 gave its approval for construction of 10 nuclear units of the new indigenously developed 700 MWe (mega watt electric) pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) as part of its clean energy thrust.

India´s ´Power for All´ initiative and focus on reducing carbon footprint have put pressure on the need for safe, green energy that can be produced on a large and sustainable scale; and it is here where nuclear power races ahead of its competitors.

Nuclear pacts improve Generation Potential
In terms of clarity of vision and rationale, our 3 stage nuclear energy programme is unparalleled. Yet, for various reasons, the Indian nuclear power sector has not achieved its true potential. For decades, we had to develop indigenous technology, prove it, mature it and then scale it from 220 MW to 550-700 MW in the recent years. Later, shortage of Nuclear fuel put limitations to the rate and scale we could have grown.
