Energy • Consumption • Waste

  • Generation
    • most power is steam driven
    • prime mover
  • T&D
    • transmission is long distance
    • distribution is local
  • Wholesale Markets
    • 10 wholesale markets in N.A.
  • Watt’s that?
    • Watt is unit of power
    • kW is 1,000 watts
    • MW is 1,000 kW
    • kW ≠ kWh

  • US per capita = 13,582 kWh/yr
  • Remind me about “Offsets” & “RECs”
  • Get your game on!
  • Remember when I said youwere polluters?
    • fyi… you are, even in your sleep

Energy • Consumption • Waste

  • We import 92% of enriched uranium necessary to run our nuclear plants
    • compare… 70% of our oil is imported
  • ~ 60% of the world\'s production of uranium is mined
    • Kazakhstan (28%)
    • Canada (22%)
    • Australia (13%)
    • compare… USA (2%)
  • ~ 40% of what we use comes from dismantled Soviet-era warheads
  • 10 companies market 89% of the world\'s uranium mine production
    • fyi… none are American owned
  • nuclear in the news
