Data Centers in America are currently consuming massive amounts of energy. In Virginia alone, they consume about 25% of Virginia’s power. And the need for more storage is growing.
Powering and cooling data centers with green energy on site is possible with the deployment of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) which can deliver on demand scalable power.
The burning of fossil fuels has increased the concentration of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, warming the planet. We must decrease production by roughly 6% every year between now and 2030 to achieve net-zero carbon emission energy.
Highly efficient hydrogen production coupled to Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) can produce carbon-free fuel and accelerate our path to a greener world. Green Energy Partners of Virginia is creating one of the industry’s first hydrogen hubs.
According to the EIA, absent significant changes in policy or technology, world energy consumption will grow by nearly 50% between 2020 and 2050.
One Small Modular Reactor (SMR) can sustainably generate enough energy to power a city of about 100,000 with today’s revolutionary advanced reactor fuel. The NRC has approved this technology for deployment and use in the United States.
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) are capable of generating about 300 megawatts of power. They have been used in the hulls of submarines for decades. They hold promise for a carbon-free energy future for the world.
According to climate experts, we have until the year 2030 to stop the continuous global warming of our planet. If we fail to achieve this, they warn of “irreversible effects” of climate change — more super typhoons, flooding, and wildfires.
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) generate sustainable, scalable carbon -free electricity and produce hydrogen which compliment Wind, Solar and fossil fuel. All sources remain important in meeting our nation’s ravenous appetite for energy today.
