Nuclear technology

Nuclear power represents an almost limitless energy resource for power generation and propulsion applications. Using current 'nuclear fission' know-how with elements like uranium for fuel, nuclear power can sustain the world’s current and future energy needs for hundreds of years.

Understanding of this technology is going through a step change and the next generation of fission power reactors has the potential to fulfil global energy requirements for at least 1,000 years.
