During a media interview with Stockhouse, when asked about the reason for his belief in nuclear energy, Dev Randhawa had this to say:
“The case for nuclear energy is really the case for keeping the world’s lights switched on. Worldwide electricity demand is set to increase by around 76% by 2030 (WNA) and, at the same time as meeting that demand, we also need to lower emissions. You’re not going to do that with just wind, solar and tidal because they can’t provide the high base loads that national grids require. In addition, high capacity energy storage technologies are still unproven. That just leaves nuclear. What’s more, the governments throughout the world know it.”
Dev Randhawa holds a BA in Business Administration with Honors from Trinity Western College of Langley, British Columbia and a Masters in Business Administration from the University of British Columbia. He has also been a Business Mentor at Trinity Western for the last three years.
