Alternative Sources of Energy – Nuclear Power

Nuclear power has an efficiency of 80% and it is an environmentally friendly source of energy. The quantity of waste produced is low; however, the waste produced includes radioactive gases so it needs to be contained.

 

The nuclear power is produced from fission reactions. Atomic power plants control the fission reactions, so the chances of a meltdown are very limited. Many countries generate their own nuclear power.
