The steam turbine then drives the electrical generator. Electric utilities continue to need new generation capacity resulting from continuing electric demand growth and the retirement of existing power plants. The central generation of electricity means it has to be distributed over the country in order to bring it to your house.

At the production station the well fluids are processed (separated and stabilised) into a gas stream, an oil stream and water. It was barely enough to power a simple string of four, 100-watt light bulbs, but the 16 scientists and engineers - all staff members of Argonne National Laboratory, which designed and built the reactor - recorded their historic achievement by chalking their names on the wall beside the generator. The report as well as the full RFI can be accessed under the "FOA Documents" heading below.

Unwilling to risk huge financial liability, private companies viewed even the remote specter of a catastrophe as a major roadblock to their participation in the development of nuclear technology... And Elon Musk's thirst for lithium is so great that he's desperate to secure his own supply at any cost. Energy Information Administration to Just Facts on April 11, 2016: “Yes, the underlying capital and operating costs include typical land acquisition costs for each technology. This supplement evaluates the potential radiological and nonradiological impacts—over a one million year period—on the aquifer environment, soils, ecology, and public health, as well as the potential for disproportionate impacts on minority or low-income populations.
