Growing alternative power options
Nations are drawing on increasingly diverse energy sources to help deliver reliable, secure and affordable supply as they move to decarbonise their energy networks. Nuclear, energy from waste, biofuels, biomass, biogas and hydro are all essential sectors that are contributing to the new and increasingly sustainable energy mix.
Across the alternative power sectors, investors and energy organisations face common barriers in establishing the business case, securing finance, keeping pace with evolving policy and gaining the support of stakeholders. In delivery, projects are innovative and demanding and often present challenges in meeting budgets and timelines.
Nuclear is the second largest source of low carbon electricity globally and offers future potential with advances in fusion technology. In new development, nuclear presents particular challenges in the scale and complexity of projects and the specialised skills and capabilities they demand, while in advanced economies there is a move to decommission existing sites.
