Q & A with John Deal, Chief Executive, Hyperion Power Generation

MINI-INTERVIEW...

Q: What are the big issues for the Future of Energy at the moment?

A: The twin dangers of the Energy status quo: Carbon dioxide emissions and the exponentially increasing demand for energy.  Nuclear power is the only technology capable of meeting the scale of energy demand without increasing carbon dioxide emissions. It really is that simple.

Q: How do you think we can make a difference?

A: The new paradigm must be Distributed & DEDICATED Generation: small plants located where the power is needed. Large, traditional nuclear power plants (NPP) are very costly, time consuming to build, and represent old, centralized thinking. Distributed and dedicated generation is cheaper, faster, reduces grid vulnerability, and in the case of the Hyperion Power Module, has distinct advantages in safety, security, and capital requirements.

Q: Why are you attending EFEF?

A: Hyperion Power Generation is committed to educating the world on the safe, secure, and inexpensive advantages of nuclear energy. The Hyperion Power Module combines the best of nuclear technology, honed over decades of testing, application, and research in an innovative design that exponentially increases the suitable applications. Now, instead of investing in new plants costing billions and taking years to build, the citizens and governments of Europe can reap the benefits of nuclear power in much smaller, more applicable increments with far smaller investments in time and money.
