Although this chapter has discussed the utilization of nuclear energy for the production of electricity, other ways to use nuclear energy to replace fossil fuels are also being considered. For example, it may be possible to use reactors that operate at very high temperatures to economically extract hydrogen from water for use in the transportation sector. However, such methods will require the development of very high temperature gas cooled reactors and associated chemical systems for the production of hydrogen.
