Article by Alina Constantin of the IAEA Department of Nuclear Energy orginally posted on the IAEA website. The IAEA is launching a new Coordinated Research Project (CRP) to assess the various nuclear cogeneration applications and explore why and how countries could consider nuclear cogeneration in their portfolio of options to address the climate challenge. The CRP, entitled ‘Role of Nuclear
The Joint IAEA–GIF Technical Meeting on the Safety of HTGR will be held in Vienna, from 9-11 December 2019. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Generation IV International Forum (GIF) have jointly committed to collaboration between their respective programmes, and to share information in selected areas of mutual interest. One of the key areas of emphasis in both the
The objectives of the event (14-15 November, in Vienna) are to: provide a technical exchange forum for Member States to keep abreast of advances in all SMR technology development and enable identification of designs available for near-term deployment enable Member States to enhance their understanding of specific novel design and technology enhancements to increase the competitiveness and attractiveness of SMRs
The purpose of the event (11-13 November, in Vienna) is to discuss recent advances in gas cooled reactor (GCR) and high temperature gas cooled reactor (HTGR) technology, to identify subjects of common interest for future collaboration through information exchange and cooperative research within the framework of the Technical Working Group on Gas Cooled Reactors (TWG-GCR), and to advise on programmatic
The purpose of the event (7-8 November, in Vienna) is to review the activities on the IAEA Nuclear Graphite Knowledge Base (NGKB), to perform the collective quality assurance for new data added to the NGKB, and to plan activities for the next twelve-month period.
The purpose of this event is to assess the potential of deploying Small and Medium Sized or Modular Reactors (SMRs) and High Temperature Reactors (HTRs) for multi-purpose applications; analyse technical and non-technical challenges for using these reactors for cogeneration applications; discuss the readiness of and innovation in technologies involved in nuclear cogeneration systems; and exchange information and knowledge on plans
