A recently patented hybrid technology may prove to be an energy game-changer. This innovative integrated combined cycle uses two fuels and a large gas (combustion) turbine in tandem with a small, efficient helium nuclear reactor to cleanly produce electrical power.
The hybrid approach to energy sustainability combines the strengths of individual energy assets to yield an optimal solution to meet the planet’s needs. This integration is more effective than the sum of the individual technologies by themselves. The hybrid is able to efficiently use all of fuel resources available in the US in a single power plant.
The hybrid-nuclear family of technologies is a fail-safe, environmentally friendly and evolutionary new direction for nuclear power and energy production.
