Nuclear Power and Sustainable Development (Spanish Edition); Energia Nucleoelectrica y Desarrollo Sostenible

Abstract

Any discussion of 21st century energy trends must take into account the global energy imbalance. Roughly 1.6 billion people still lack access to modern energy services, and few aspects of development - whether related to living standards, health care or industrial productivity - can take place without the requisite supply of energy. As we look to the century before us, the growth in energy demand will be substantial, and 'connecting the unconnected' will be a key to progress. Another challenge will be sustainability. How can we meet these growing energy needs without creating negative side effects that could compromise the living environment of future generations? Nuclear power is not a 'fix-all' option. It is a choice that has a place among the mix of solutions, and expectations for the expanding use of nuclear power are rising. In addition to the growth in demand, these expectations are driven by energy security concerns, nuclear power's low greenhouse gas emissions, and the sustained strong performance of nuclear plants. Each country must make its own energy choices; one size does not fit all. But for those countries interested in making nuclear power part of their sustainable development strategies, it is important that the nuclear  More>>

Aproximadamente 1 600 millones de persona aun no tienen acceso a servicios energeticos modernos, y pocos aspectos del desarrollo - ya se trate de los niveles de vida, la atencion sanitaria o la productividad industrial - pueden conseguirse sin el necesario suministro de energia. Si consideramos el siglo que tenemos por delante, vemos que el crecimiento de la demanda energetica sera sustancial y que una clave del progreso consistira en 'conectar a los que carecen de conexion'. Otro desafio sera la sostenibilidad. Como podemos satisfacer estas necesidades crecientes de energia sin generar efectos colaterales negativos que amenacen el entorno vital de las generaciones futuras? La energia nucleoelectrica no es una panacea: es una opcion que se combina con otras para dar respuesta a los problemas energeticos. Las expectativas acerca de la expansion del uso de la energia nucleoelectrica estan creciendo. Ademas del aumento de la demanda, estas expectativas tambien obedecen a la preocupacion por la seguridad energetica, asi como a la baja emision de gases de efecto invernadero en la generacion de energia nucleoelectrica y al solido historial de las centrales nucleares. Cada pais debe hacer sus propias opciones energeticas: no hay una medida que valga para todos. Pero para los paises interesados en incorporar la energia nucleoelectrica en sus estrategias de desarrollo sostenible es importante mantener abierta y accesible esa opcion energetica.}
