Opportunities and Challenges for Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems

Research output: NRELPresentation


Nuclear-renewable hybrid energy systems (also known as integrated nuclear-renewable systems) are conceptual systems that have two or more energy inputs and produce two or more products. They maximize profitability, and usually equipment utilization, by adjusting between the products depending upon the availability of resources and market value. For example a nuclear-renewable hybrid energy system that produces electricity and hydrogen would maximize sales of electricity when its price is high and shift to hydrogen production when the electricity price is low. This presentation summarizes the results of several economic analyses of nuclear-renewable hybrid energy systems and they key overall conclusions from those analyses.
