ENG: Atomic energy is energy produced by atoms. Nuclear energy, the energy resulting of potential difference of the nuclear force. Nuclear reaction, a process in which two nuclei or nuclear particles collide, to produce different products than the initial products; see also nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. Nuclear power, the use of nuclear reactions to produce electricity in nuclear reactors.Radioactive decay, the set of various processes by which unstable atomic nuclei (nuclides) emit subatomic particles. The energy of inter-atomic or chemical bonds, which holds atoms together in compounds. The term originated in 1903 when Ernest Rutherford began to speak of the possibility of atomic energy. The term was popularized by H. G. Wells in the phrase, "splitting the atom", ...

Unsure about nuclear power? Here's the five questions ...

... you must answer to decide Twenty five years on from Chernobyl, the heated debate on nuclear power remains resistant to cold facts: simply too few are known. But making your own judgements on five key questions will lead to your answer Containing the elemental forces that rage inside a nuclear reactor is one of the great achievements of science, but losing control, as happened 25 years ago on Tuesday at Chernobyl, is one of its greatest failures. So what to think of nuclear power? People often ask me if I support or oppose the building of new nuclear power stations, presuming I ...

International Atomic Energy Agency Briefing on Fukushima ...

... Nuclear Accident On Monday, 18 April 2011, the IAEA provided the following information on the current status of nuclear safety in Japan: 1. Current Situation Overall, the situation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant remains very serious but there are early signs of recovery in some functions, such as electrical power and instrumentation. On 17th April, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) announced that TEPCO had issued a "Roadmap towards Restoration from the Accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station". The roadmap outlines 63 measures to be ...

Say no to nuclear power: Nobel Laureates

Nobel Peace Laureates today asked all countries, including India and China, to invest in safer forms of renewable energy instead of nuclear energy in the backdrop of recent atomic disaster in Japan. "It is time to recognize that nuclear power is not a clean, safe or affordable source of energy," said the letter written by nine laureates including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Adolfo Perez Esquivel and Jose Ramos Horta. The women laureates are Betty Williams, Mairead Maguire, Rigoberta Menchu Tum, Jody Williams, Shirin Ebadi and Wangari Maathai. Read more: indian express.com (Apr 21 2011)

Operators told to plan shutdowns three years ahead, focus on labor
Low wholesale prices have slashed nuclear operators’ profits and increased the need to optimize decommissioning costs. There are currently 18 nuclear power plants being decommissioned in the U.S. and this will soon increase following a recent spate of plant closure announcements. Many more plants are at risk of closure under current market conditions.Related Content: US utility’s deferred reactor clean-up shows cost pressure on early closuresUS operators urged to decommission immediately to prevent cost hikesUS reactor closures raise urgency of new decommissioning rulesGermany urged to remove nuclear decommissioning hurdles to speed closuresImage: Image Caption: Research shows proactive work during plant operations cuts the cost of transitioning to dismantling.

Diversity is Strength in Electricity
The following is a guest post from Matt Wald, senior director of policy analysis and strategic planning at NEI. Follow Matt on Twitter at @MattLWald.It’s time, says the expert, to step back and take a look at the role of natural gas. Electricity demand shifts up or down in a heartbeat, or considerably faster. The hardware that supplies power generally changes slowly, because power plants and transmission lines take years to plan and build. Those two considerations are balanced by an expert organization called the North American Electric Reliability Corporation. NERC looks ahead a decade and projects whether the system will have enough “reserve margin.” That is, will it be able to produce as much power as consumers will demand.But this year NERC, as it is known, shifted gears. Yes, it raised questions about the adequacy of generating capacity in some regions in the next decade, but it also took notice of a different problem: a huge fraction of that generating capacity uses a singl
Why Quality Assurance Programs Verify Safety of Components at U.S. Nuclear Power Plants
Pam CowanThe following is a guest post by Pam Cowan, Vice President of Regulatory Affairs at the Nuclear Energy Institute.Earlier today, the Wall Street Journal published a story concerning manufacturing records and forgings at AREVA’s Le Creusot forge in France. A very limited number of U.S. facilities are using components forged at Le Creusot.After an investigation by AREVA in coordination with the affected plants, it was determined that the components were safe and met required quality standards. Additionally, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission to date has not identified any safety significance at U.S. plants, stating, “examination of the evidence, to this point, fails to raise a safety concern.” Here's more from AREVA:Significant progress has been made on both investigations, including the identification of components that may have been affected in the United States, and the review and verification of the quality and safety of those components.AREVA contacted the U.S.
What the Millstone Nuclear Power Plant Means to Connecticut & New England
The following is a guest post by Matt Crozat, Senior Director, Business Policy at NEI.Matt CrozatOccupying less than a square mile along the busy Northeast Corridor between New York and Boston, it’s easy to miss the Millstone Power Station. A new economic impact study released today by NEI documents just how important the two-unit Dominion plant is to Connecticut and the region. Indeed, if Millstone were lost it would be dearly missed.Millstone, owned and operated by Dominion Resources, provides almost 60 percent of the electricity consumed in Connecticut, and adds nothing to the region’s air pollution. In fact, it displaces fossil-fired plants, which would pollute.But its role is felt even more deeply when one considers the economic value the plant generates. There are 1,569 full-time employees at the plant, in Waterford, but the economic activity they create supports an additional 1,691 jobs in the state and beyond.But Millstone’s main role isn’t to provide employment, it
