Brazil's Eletronuclear CEO Leonam Dos Santos Guimaraes spoke with Energy Intelligence's Jessica Sondgeroth about the separation of Eletronuclear from its former parent company Eletrobras and the development of its third reactor at the Angra nuclear power plant site. Ahead of a presidential election, Eletronuclear hopes to begin operating the Angra-3 newbuild in 2028 and is exploring options to deploy small modular reactors in Brazil to meet short- and long-term national climate goals. Guimaraes also talks about hydrogen production at Angra-1 and -2 and the potential to produce more to supply emerging demand for energy storage solutions.
