El futur de l'opció nuclear i la sostenibilitat energètica

Xavier Ortega


The global energy sector and the current situation of nuclear energy in the
world are analysed. The main techniques used in current fission reactors are
then described. The development of nuclear generation systems to date is
explained, as are prospects for the future, such as new models of fission reactors
and the possibility of nuclear fusion, which is still being studied. Some of the
traditional objections to the nuclear industry are discussed and nuclear energy
is presented as an important factor in energy sustainability, both now and in
the future.
