And nuclear enrichment becomes cheaper, 1/10

........apparently with the LASER as tool.

Cheerios!

Let's do a global recap!

Global electricity capacity = 3,500 giga. Mostly produced in BIG SCALE >1 GIGA plants.
However, especially in renewable energy scenes, smaller scales prevail - mostly < 5 MW and is either link or independent of the Grid.

Coal = 50%
Hydroelectric = 25%
Nuclear = 10%
Natural Gas or LNG = 10%
Biomass, Wind, Photo voltaic = 5%

Cheerios!

Let's calculate the estimated reserves of fuel

................on our globe currently!

Let's start with COAL reserves.
Seems like China, USA, Russia, Australia and India possess some of the biggest store of coal.

From the internet - it says 861 billion tonnes.
At 5.25 billion tonnes a year = it should last 165 years!

Cheerios!

The real coal deposit is PROBABLY 3X to 5X the American estimates.

BUT, we are actually talking about RECOVERABLE ECONOMIC volume.

A coal reserves in deep cold Siberia, can be recovered BUT is TERRIBLY EXPENSIVE.
In fact, Australia has been able to export IRON ORE, COAL URANIUM cheaply is due to is massive territory and ease to EXTRACT and TRANSPORT cheaply.

This requires TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITY.

That's why the USA website does not even bother about Africa's LARGER coal deposits.
Using this data as a RESOURCE, we have to PLAN for the PRUDENTIAL USE of energy, especially how to gain MORE GNP (They say wealth do equal Happiness TO A CERTAIN EXTENT).

We probably have enough COAL to last between 300 to 1,000 years!
That's at 3,500 giga for 7,000 million people.


Cheerios!

China will need to conserve it's COAL DEPOSITS

..............and TAP on the NATURAL GAS fields.

We now understand that Natural Gas is produced from HYDROCARBON FLAKES sipping into the HOT EARTH'S INNER CRUST, to be trapped as natural gas in the NATURAL GAS FIELDS. This is huge especially in offshore China, where the world's biggest fault is located - the Earthquake zone.

Tapping NATURAL GAS is more costly compared to mining COAL and is limited by the available NATURAL FORMATIONS that can trap the Natural gas.

Any additional electricity generation would have to be COMBINED CYCLE and FAST BREEDER NUCLEAR POWER plants.

Cheerios!

More EFFICIENT use of ENERGY would be China's main

..............activity, as it tries to create BETTER QUALITY LIFE with less intensive use of ENERGY and FUEL.

This will ensure ENERGY, FUEL sufficiency OR Prudential rate.
China would have to prepare against "Western Alliance" gaming that would mean CLASHING either North Asian Trade Route State bloc or South Asian Trade Route State bloc.

We expect the Caucasian-Asian plains to be eyed suspiciously!

Cheerios!

An rather unknown fact to most people

...........it's that China's is the world's largest producer of 300MW coal fired thermal power plants.

Such firms includes China's Shanghai Electric Corp., SEPCO Electric Power, Dongfang Electric Corp. and Harbin Corp. China has installed capacity nearly 700 giga!

It's now probably the world largest producers of such equipment.

SCALE advantage!

Cheerios!
