Indian Atoms Towards The Net Zero Course.

IYNS National Technology Day Symposium

Climate change stands as an unprecedented global challenge, casting its long shadow over the future of our planet. As India stands at the crossroads of development and environmental stewardship, the imperative of nuclear energy becomes increasingly clear. By embracing advanced technologies such as Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) and Micro Modular Reactors (MMRs) along with fleet mode deployment of its flagship large reactors, India can not only meet its energy demands but also contribute significantly to its efforts in combating climate change. These innovative technologies offer a flexible and scalable solution, allowing for modular construction and reduced upfront costs yielding early return of investments. Additionally, the use of thorium as a fuel source in these reactors aligns with India's abundant thorium reserves, offering a sustainable and indigenous energy solution.


Along with our Nuclear Technology (Atoms), Youth Population (Atoms) is another asset required to be fruitfully brought into the service of the nation. With 66% of its population (808 million) below the age of 35, India has the world’s largest youth population. India, alone, produces 1.5 million engineering graduates annually. This digital native generation is well informed with global developments and is willing to contribute in a smart way. Harnessing ‘Youth Power’ along with ‘Nuclear Power’ will be a kingpin narrative towards India’s journey to ‘Vikshit Bharat’.
