Intellectual Ventures: TerraPower joins other big ideas in “Abundance”
Share this article

From growing algae-based petroleum that eats carbon dioxide, to a “smart” energy grid that manages electricity consumption and storage as efficiently as possible, Dr. Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler touch on global energy solutions and more in their new book, “Abundance: Why The Future Will Be Much Better Than You Think.” Among the big ideas they see transforming the next century is the evolution of nuclear energy, which the authors discuss with IV’s Nathan Myhrvold. Nathan describes current misperceptions surrounding nuclear power, and the potential for Generation IV technologies like TerraPower’s traveling wave reactor to provide abundant sources of energy to the far reaches of the developing world.
