Ukraine wants solar power area around Chernobyl nuclear reactor




The Ukrainian government would plan to have the area that surrounds the nuclear reactor at Chernobyl to form a solar panel. That would be about a third of able to generate the energy of what did the nuclear power plant before the accident in 1986.

The plans are not officially presented, but the Guardian has a presentation realized that sent the Ukrainian government to large banks likely to get funding. The presentation shows that in the declared uninhabitable area around the Chernobyl nuclear reactor should appear a solar power plant will generate 1000MW of power. There are also plans for other forms of renewable energy, such as winning biogas. For this is 400MW in the books, bringing the total would come to around 1400MW. When the Chernobyl nuclear power plant was still functioning, 4000MW could be raised with.

The advantage of a solar power plant in the area around Chernobyl is that the country is particularly cheap. That’s because it has been declared uninhabitable and is not suitable for applications such as agriculture. In addition, Ukraine has a relatively large amount of sunshine, so it could achieve high efficiency with solar power.

Or actually funding comes to solar power and other forms of renewable energy is still unclear. However, according to The Guardian, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development interested in providing funding for the project. Earlier wore this bank to a large sarcophagus of the destroyed nuclear reactor should include, and thus to protect against the release of radiation.

On April 26 1986 took place in reactor number four explosion site, allowing radioactive material spread over a large area. The disaster came directly 31 people, but radioactive contamination caused afterwards for more victims.
