Advantages & Disadvantages of Nuclear Energy
Advantage #2
Disadvantage #2
Nuclear reactors, once constructed, have an expiration date. Nuclear plants have a limited life, for the construction of a nuclear plant is very high and must be recovered in no time, so this raises the cost of electricity generated. In other words, the energy generated is cheap compared to the cost of fuel, but having to repay the construction of the nuclear plant's significantly more expensive.
Disadvantage #1
Nuclear power plants are targets for terrorist organizations, nuclear debuted in front of the world as two bombs dropped on Japan at end World War II.
Advantage #1
Unlike fossil fuel plants, nuclear power plants don't produce smoke. Electricity is created by splitting atoms in a series of nuclear reactions, otherwise known as nuclear fission. Nuclear power is considered carbon-free and produces more electricity than other renewables like solar and wind.
Nuclear power plants provide low-cost, they also are designed to operate continuously for long periods of time. Existing and future nuclear waste can be reduced through waste recycling and reprocessing, similar to Japan and the EU.
