Post written by Michael Futterer, Senior Expert at the European Commission – Joint Research Centre. This October, Canada was once more a hotspot for numerous international events around SMR development and deployment. In conjunction with the annual conference on Small Modular Reactors (G4SR-4) a group of meetings and workshops was organised by the Generation IV International Forum with industry (GIF
To officially launch the project, the GEMINI 4.0 consortium met on 21 June 2022 both in Lyon, France and online for those who could not attend in person. GEMINI 4.0 aims to demonstrate that the GEMINI+ system can provide a global solution for the competitive and safe decarbonization of industrial activities.. Throughout the day, partners discussed the objectives and main
The GEMINI+ partners produced a booklet dedicated to nuclear cogeneration through High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactors (HTGRs) for industry and transport. Dedicated to the general public, the stakeholders from the political spheres, from industry and from financial institutions, this document outlines: what is the potential of HTGR technology how can it contribute to achieving the European energy transition why Poland made it
To mark the end of the GEMINI+ project which was launched in September 2017, join the GEMINI+ Final Workshop organised online, on 25 November. This half-day event (8:45 am to 1 pm) will provide a perspective on the contribution that High Temperature Reactors (HTRs) may bring to deep decarbonisation besides focus on a real potential first demonstration project in Poland.

The subject of the high temperature reactor project went to the Polish Parliament forum on the last day of January this year, thanks to the presentation that I had a honour to present at the meeting of the Parliamentary Mining and Energy Team, chaired by the Member of Parliament Mr. Ireneusz Zyska – writes Dr Józef Sobolewski, former director of
The Japanese Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) received the basic agreement from the Nuclear Regulation Authority (NRA) in Japan toward restart HTTR on 25 March 2020. After the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011, new regulation standard for the test and research reactors was issued by NRA on 18 December 2013. JAEA submitted an application for the permission
Have a look at the second edition of the GEMINI+ newsletter, produced in collaboration with the European Nuclear Cogeneration Industrial Initiative (NC2I)!
In the framework of the GEMINI+ project, a 5-day joint workshop took place in Swierk (Otwock – Poland) from 30 January to 5 February 2020. Organised by NUCLIC and NCBJ, this workshop gathered 10 participants and was dedicated to the improvement of HTGR neutronics modelling. Participants used the SERPENT computer code to perform neutronics calculations on increasingly complicated HTGR models, which are
