The Power of Promise: Examining Nuclear Energy in India

M.V. Ramana (Author)

The volume surveys the nuclear energy scenario in India. Physicist and writer M. V. Ramana provides a narrative on the evolution of India’s nuclear energy programme, delving into various aspects of it. He studies to what extent it can be justified by enormous financial budgets and the kind of high level political commitment that has been associated with it. He argues that the nuclear energy programme has failed in the past and its future prospects are bleak. He shows that nuclear power is more expensive than conventional forms of electricity generation expensive and it is a source of high risk as organisational inadequacies have been observed at nuclear facilities. He probes the impact of nuclear fuel cycle facilities on public health and the environment.
