America possesses hundreds of years of low-cost coal resources that are becoming increasingly unpopular due to climate-change concerns. The promise of the nuclear gas reactor also remains out-of-reach as a result of technical and cost considerations, while the high cost of conventional nuclear power greatly hampers the building of new facilities. Hybrid-nuclear power is an unexpected breakthrough solution to the growing energy and climate change dilemmas. The emerging hybrid technology can help revitalize the coal as well as nuclear industries while also significantly helping the United States achieve energy independence.
