Nuclear energy is a near-renewable energy source because it is produced by breeder reactors and the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) at Kalpakkam plays a vital role in it. “IGCAR is a pride of the country,” said R Chidambaram, DAE- Homi Bhabha Chair Professor and Former Principal Scientific Advisor, Government of India.
