The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster has sparked debate in the field of energy security all over the world. As Germany and Switzerland announce plans to phase out nuclear power, India's nuclear’s debate, and its looming water crisis, remains largely unopened.
In the global hunt for energy security, nuclear energy has grown increasingly relevant as countries struggle to find sustainable sources of energy. The ambitious plans to build the world’s biggest nuclear plant in Jaitapur may prove to be the litmus test that defines the role of nuclear energy in India's future.
Japan’s Fukushima fallout puts the future of nuclear power in India in jeopardy. Our energy needs are so high that we will now need to consider all forms of energy - solar, wind, bio-mass, geo-thermal, oceanic energy, even energy through waves.
