Fireside chat: The benefits of nuclear power in the data center–
As the year 2030 looms closer, data centers face escalating pressure to uphold their commitments to reduce carbon emissions. This mounting challenge, coupled with the complexities of energy supply instability and escalating expenses, has triggereddata centers to explore novel approaches for sustaining their operations. Consequently, nuclear power has emerged as a prominent contender.
This broadcast will take a deep dive into the future of nuclear in the data center market, and explore how the heavy regulation of this industry makes it a safe and reliable method of energy generation. However, despite there being some clear use cases of its viability, we are many years off nuclear becoming a widely used power source owing to its economic feasibility. This begs the questions: when will it be deployed at scale? What is the practicality of SMRs? What technology will be used to bridge the gap as we wait for a nuclear solution?
