TITANS OF NUCLEAR | INTERVIEWING WORLD EXPERTS ON NUCLEAR ENERGY
Ep. 76 - Eric Ingersoll

Eric Ingersoll is founder of the NGO Energy Options Network and a managing director and partner at LucidCatalyst.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Eric’s personal evolution and his entrepreneurial endeavors, including his former company General Compression 

  • Eric’s work as one of the world’s leading climate change analysts and advisors 

  • A deep dive into natural gas cavern storage 

  • How a combination of cheap gas and lack of demand for electricity nearly eliminated the wind development industry 

  • Why compressed air storage and wind energy can’t solve the global carbon emission problem 

  • System constraints Eric established while determining how to bring carbon-free electricity to the entire world and how advanced nuclear fits within those constraints 

  • Commercialization development and deployment challenges with advanced reactors 

  • The Nuclear Cost Driver Study 

  • Ways in which we can reduce the cost and time required in the construction process to increase nuclear’s scalability
