The Australian Nuclear Energy Authority (ANEA)

Australia needs the Australian Nuclear Energy Authority (ANEA) which will be independent of the States and responsible for building and maintaining electricity supply from nuclear power stations in Australia.

Nuclear Energy acceptance

The big breakthrough for Australia to have nuclear power stations to provide its electricity comes as a result of deciding to subscribe to AUKUS which will have dozens of Australians living in close quarters to nuclear reactors for months at a time. How can that be bad for humans if it is endorsed by the Government hence having nuclear reactors located around the country to provide electricity to the grid must be acceptable.

Albanese has proclaimed that cost is the big deterrent but if his figures were looked at they would no doubt be based on nuclear reactors built in the USA where such activity is the province of private enterprise with a multitude of companies engaged in the activity.

A more sensible and cheaper option is to have all of the nuclear power stations the responsibility of just one entity as happens in France and South Korea.

When I was in South Korea twenty years ago 29% of their electricity production capability was from nuclear reactors and it constituted 50% of their supply because hydro and coal were part of the mix.

Building costs are cheaper in both countries with South Korea actually having had a decrease over recent years and would be the proposed builder of Australia’s reactors.

Under no circumstances can an Australian company be given responsibility for the construction because none has experience in this field which is why the proposal to have South Australia building nuclear submarines such a nonsense.

While the building will be done by the South Koreans with suitably qualified Australian workers participating the overall supervision of our nuclear energy supply must be the province of just one body.

This will be the Australian Nuclear Energy Authority (ANEA).


What is ANEA

We need to send a message to the Energy ministers in each State in Australia.

Australia needs the Australian Nuclear Energy Authority (ANEA) which will be independent of the States and responsible for building and maintaining electricity supply from nuclear power stations in Australia.

ANEA must be proclaimed as soon as possible with support from all Australians.

Because Australia has no nuclear energy industry it will rely on the experience of another country to build the necessary nuclear power stations.

South Korea should be used to build Australia’s nuclear power stations.

It must be ensured that ANEA will not be disempowered by any individual or group in Australia so that the time to build each power station will be five years at most.

Power stations will be built in locations which are suitable to use the existing transmission lines. Obviously this will be near or at the site of existing coal fired power stations.

Some obvious questions.

Why does it need to be independent of the States?

The USA has its nuclear industry run by many different companies with resultant high costs which are no doubt those used by Albanese to assess the cost of nuclear power. France and South Korea have their nuclear power stations run by a single authority with resultant lower costs.

Can the energy ministers meet?

They can meet online and do not need to do so in person.

Can lawyers slow the building?

The ANEA must be non justiciable because the activities of ANEA must be conducted without interruption from the courts. Australia has been the victim of lawyers and the courts with many issues and cannot have the actions of ANEA affected by them on this issue particularly if the energy from it is going to be sufficient by 2030.


Some help in knowing about nuclear.

The cost of nuclear

Would Albo’s helpers get him to listen to this podcast so that he gets to know the actual cost of nuclear energy.

He also needs to implement a cost of recycling for renewable products which is absolutely necessary and will make the cost of nuclear less deterring.

S.Korea to bid for Saudi Arabia's $10 bn nuclear plant order

Back in 2009, South Korea had secured a nuclear reactor order from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for $18.6 billion, under which it agreed to build four nuclear power plants based on the South Korean model. It cost 4 trillion to 5 trillion won ($3.2 billion-$4 billion) per plant, only half the price proposed by France’s Areva S.A.

The Barakah nuclear power plant is also the first nuclear power station in the Arabian Peninsula. It is composed of four APR1400 nuclear energy reactors with an electric output of 1400 MW each. The construction of three of them has been completed.

If the country clinches the order, South Korea will likely position itself as a leading exporter in the growing nuclear reactor market, ahead of high-cost France and Russia engaging in war with Ukraine.


So many other countries have a sensible attitude to nuclear power. Australia needs to join them. Plans For New Reactors Worldwide


Save the world. Build Nuclear

World Nuclear Association promotes nuclear energy as a sustainable electricity source and represents the industry’s interests in important energy debates worldwide. They provide the latest and most important information about nuclear energy online and through publications.

Comparing energy costs reveals that nuclear power significantly undercuts other sources. One kilowatt hour (kWh) of nuclear power costs an average of $0.05 (61.5 won), while coal, solar and natural gas are priced at $0.07 (96 won), $0.11 (149.9 won) and $0.13 (170 won) per kWh, respectively. An amplified supply of this affordable energy could catalyze profound economic shifts in Korea.
Expanding inexpensive nuclear energy could substantially reduce expenses for consumers and businesses. For instance, electricity derived from nuclear power, when juxtaposed against gas, might offer savings of up to 60%. These reduced electricity rates gain even more significance against a backdrop of mounting inflation and escalating interest rates, which compound financial strains.
