The Politics of Nuclear Energy
placing this here due to Exelons past history of buying out competing solar and then bankrupting them, thereby eliminating their competition. Legal term intentionally withheld.

Exelon's status as renewable power force teeters
A major California bankruptcy could lead the Chicago-based power giant to lose most of its wind farms—and a huge solar power ranch—thanks to a decision two years ago to mortgage them for hundreds of millions.

Exelon, Laughing All the Way to the Bank

Subsidies guarantee investor returns.

Profits boil over.

Exelon increases lobbying by millions.

Exelon has hit the regulatory jackpot.
Exelon's nuclear plants continue to win subsidies.

Bipartisan legislation and courts are supporting the subsidies.

More to come as legislators target carbon dioxide emissions.

Investors should feel comfortable with their positions and the safety of the dividend.
Holtec stole the funds to build a factory for Ukraine Small modular reactors.
The Campus will house Holtec’s corporate engineering center, two large manufacturing plants, a reactor test loop and a number of ancillary facilities. Calling the future Holtec Technology Campus a “cathedral of industry”, Dr. Singh proclaimed that, “… our Campus will be the place where our innovations will be developed, nurtured, nourished and manufactured.” Firmly predicting that the city of Camden will be the birthplace for Holtec’s transformative “walk away safe” small modular reactor, SMR-160.
...Holtec President and CEO, Dr. Singh informed the assembled audience that, though the project team has cleared the site, removing all of the hazardous material in remarkable time, the extensive amount of hazardous material has slowed the project, declaring, “… we have taken 50 acres in Camden and made this land pristine and clean without a trace of hazardous material.” Dr. Singh repeated his oft-stated reason for selecting the city of Camden as the location for the new Campus, “the residents of Camden need a path out of hereditary poverty. We, as a successful company, have an obligation to show them that pathway to middle class.”
...President and Chief Operating Officer of PSEG, Mr. William Levis, hailed the expanding partnership between PSEG and Holtec because “Holtec is the best at what they do.” Mr. Levis said he has a shared vision with Dr. Singh that, “this [Camden] will be the birthplace and the center of the universe for the small modular reactor whose benefits of nuclear power – that is a safe, reliable, and clean source of energy – will be felt throughout the world.”
...Lieutenant Governor Guadagno stressed that the state officials and Mayor Redd worked together on every level and across the aisle to make this project a reality. Extolling Holtec’s role, she stated, “Today, I think it’s fair to say that in addition to Campbell’s Soup, Holtec is the anchor tenant for the city of Camden.” Lieutenant Governor Guadagno thanked Dr. Singh for his commitment to the state of New Jersey and the city of Camden by making the largest private investment in Camden history.

USDOE to Provide Access to National Laboratories to Support SMR-160’s Ongoing R&D

August 23, 2017
We are pleased to announce that SMR, LLC has been selected to receive support from the Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) for continued development of the SMR-160. On June 26, 2017, SMR, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Holtec International, was awarded a $500,000 GAIN Nuclear Energy voucher. The voucher will be redeemed for access to expertise and capabilities at a national laboratory, accelerating the innovation of the Company’s small modular reactor....
...Over the next year, SMR, LLC will work with Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) to develop an SMR‑160 natural-circulation primary flow simulation engine to perform a series of thermal-hydraulic stability analyses and simulations. SMR, LLC and ORNL will collaborate on these activities and later transition the simulation tools developed to SMR, LLC offices at the Holtec Technology Campus in Camden, NJ. SMR, LLC expects the products of this award will support a key element of the plant licensing specification and future testing activities, helping pave the way toward plant deployment.

ORNL team runs SMR simulations on Summit with greater than expected efficiency

Results of the simulations...modeling the operational behavior of small modular reactors.
Our hope is to more accurately predict how the reactors will behave before they are built. This research instills more confidence that the reactor is going to behave exactly as predicted.

—Steven Hamilton
Eat as much as you like, DOE is paying the tab for your new SMRs. Some of the portions are "micro", but eat all you want- we'll make more. Portsmouth Gaseous Diffusion Plant will expel the hot air...in our classrooms -as the new "cathedrals" will be kept "pristine and clean without a trace of hazardous material", so these brand new nuclear inventions can be "developed, nurtured, nourished and manufactured" in their new "birthplace and the center of the universe...and will be felt throughout the world"

A star is born.

The following projects were selected under the Funding Opportunity Announcement titled "U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development" (DE-FOA-0001817) - 3rd round of calendar year 2018 (application due date of July 31, 2018)

Perry reads letter from Trump: "I send my greetings to the delegates of the 62nd International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) General Conference.

The United States strongly supports peaceful nuclear cooperation. This includes American investments in IAEA programs, which have positively affected the lives of people around the world through advancements in industry, medicine, agriculture, and energy production. It also includes American development and exports of advanced nuclear reactors that maintain the highest standards of operational efficiency, supporting jobs in a critical industry in the United States. ... "

Perry himself remarks:

"And that includes nuclear energy, that produces nearly one-third of the world’s clean electricity onsite 24/7.

Now imagine providing this power to the 1.3 billion people without electricity in our world.

Imagine an energy boom surging through nations replacing poverty with abundance.

And imagine something else as well.

Imagine one day fulfilling the words of the Biblical prophet, Isaiah famously inscribed on a wall across from the United Nations:

“They shall beat their swords into plowshares, their spears into pruning hooks. Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.” ..."

Perry: "In keeping with the IAEA’s motto of “Atoms for Peace and Development,” I am pleased to announce that the United States is making a $1.1 million extra-budgetary contribution to help the IAEA build a new energy center to power its Nuclear Applications Laboratories. These labs help Member States reap the benefits of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. "

This guy was a paid actor and industry insider. The dossier was in the corruption thread. He abruptly died immediately following a grant from the gov. and Holtec.

NRC link crashes my internet.

Know why?
From HHDs post: “this [Camden] will be the birthplace and the center of the universe for the small modular reactor whose benefits of nuclear power – that is a safe, reliable, and clean source of energy – will be felt throughout the world.”


Getting smelted, the world felt it
Chernobyl, Fukushima, TMI, all melted
Guess what? The world felt it
Dumped at sea, the world felt it
Buried below a tree, the world felt it
Flying fuel flea, the world felt it
Blind with money, the world felt it
Nuclear honey, the world felt it
Swiss cheese chromosome, the world felt it
Evacuate home, the world felt it
Birds falling from the sky, the world felt it
Whales, starfish, seals pile high, the world felt it
Linear dose lie, the world felt it
Fleeced and pelted with a radioactive pellet
On a ionized planet, life melted

Why here, you ask?

BEIJING (dpa-AFX) - The U.S. Government blacklisted four Chinese nuclear power companies, accusing them of helping to acquire advanced U.S. technology for Chinese military.

Because, we will stop at nothing to save the nuke industry. We are squashing competition. Watch Holtec/Ukraine...
