Description

Electrical demand world-wide is likely to increase at 100 GWe per year for the next 50-100 years. The vast majority of this will occur in the developing world where they will install the cheapest electricity as soon as they can afford it. Currently that is coal. In order to change this forecast we must invent a power generator that is cheaper than coal and can be massively and rapidly deployed. ThorCon using a thorium molten salt reactor is one such candidate.
