AustraliaClimate changeEnergy Minister Chris Bowen said that if Australia were to phase out all coal-fired thermal power plants and replace them with small nuclear reactors (SMRs), the cost would be A$378 billion (about US$249 billion). The more it is.
Bowen told the media on the 18th that such high costs have turned the energy transition proposed by the opposition party into an illusion and fantasy.
He said Australia needed 71 small nuclear power reactors to replace a total of 21 billion watts of thermal power plants. “I can’t think of anything worse than nuclear power generation in Australia.”
