This book reviews the main energy sources, production problems and energy perspectives in Germany and Mexico. It surveys the status of traditional and alternative energy sources, including fossil fuels, nuclear, hydraulic, eolic, solar, and hydrogen cells. The book emphasizes the search for answers to such questions as What are the main problems of industries based on fossil fuels, and What is the present status of hydraulic and nuclear energy?It has been recognized that regarding the operation on nuclear power plants, performance and safety are almost synonyms. Good maintenance programs in NPP mean more guaranteed safety and more hours delivering maximum power to the grid. ... more reactors are of particular worth, since the more the number of operating reactors the more difficult to maintain an even high performance in all of them.
