A new SNETP factsheet is out! “Small Modular Reactors”

 

Nuclear Fuel - From Cradle to Grave (11)

The last decade has seen an increased interest in SMRs or small modular reactors. These small standardised reactors tackle the financial-burden currently observed in large nuclear projects. They also provide increased flexibility to balance the ever complex-to-manage electricity demand. SMRs offer new ways of producing and consuming nuclear energy, paving the way for industrial customers and emerging nuclear countries.

SNETP releases a new factsheet

 

Nuclear Fuel - From Cradle to Grave (10)

 

Since the 1950s, nuclear reactor designs have continued to evolve, from the earliest Generation I prototype designs to the Generation II designs that have operated safely over the past 40 years. The latest Generation III designs recently introduced, e.g. the European Pressurised Reactor (EPR), incorporate the lessons learned from earlier designs and reduce plant costs while enhancing safety and security. Today’s research on…

The future of nuclear energy in a carbon-constrained world

 Bannières SNETP (1)

Harnessing the power of the atomic nucleus for peaceful purposes was one of the most astonishing scientific and technological achievements of the 20th century. It has benefited medicine, security, and energy. Yet, after a few decades of rapid growth, investment in nuclear energy has stalled in many developed countries and nuclear energy now constitutes a meager 5% of…

PUBLIC CONSULTATION – CEN WS 64 of the European Committee for Standardisation

 

standardisation

Harmonisation of licensing rules, certification, and standards, pre-normative research for new design and operating conditions, establishment of shared codes and standards with a strategy providing methods to progressively enlarge consensus among stakeholders can only be supported by all parties involved. This also includes a digital approach to nuclear, optimisation of supply chain, mutual recognition by regulatory activities, streamlining of design approval and harmonised classification schemes.

The ongoing public consultation of Workshop…
