Sweden to allow new nuclear plants; US utility fixes AP1000 build cost
Sweden to abolish nuclear tax, allow new build The Swedish government has agreed to phase out a national nuclear capacity tax between 2017 and 2019 and allow the construction of up to 10 new reactors to replace ageing plants, it announced June 10. The framework agreement, signed by the coalition government of Social Democrats and Green Party members as well as opposition parties, also sets a target of 100% renewable energy by 2040. This is a goal and not a cut-off date for nuclear generation, the government said.Related Content: Sweden's plant closures to hike skills demand from 2017French plant spend pegged at 100bn euros; Sweden’s Oskarshamn 1 to shut mid-2017US one-step license gains rely on comprehensive build planUS AP1000 projects advance on revamped EPC termsImage: Image Caption: The Swedish government believes nuclear power can help to curb energy costs in the transition towards renewables.

UK told to protect supply chain skills as new build delays bite
The U.K. government and nuclear industry have introduced a suite of training and knowledge management programs to ensure sufficient labor resources are in place for planned decommissioning work and new build projects. The U.K. nuclear workforce will need to grow from 77,880 in 2015 to a peak of 111,280 in 2021, based on new build plans set out in 2015, according to the Nuclear Energy Skills Alliance (NESA).Related Content: UK decom sector must change plant staff mindset to avoid labor shortageUK firms urged to bring new ideas, technologies to decom supply chainUK firms await Hinkley C finance triggers to enter nuclear marketUK decom suppliers prepare for tighter project budgetsImage: Image Caption: (Image credit: Rusak)Channels: Decommisioning

Why Nuclear Cooperation with “Non-Nuclear” Norway is Important for U.S. Industry
Ted JonesThe following is a guest post by Ted Jones, Director of International Supplier Relations for NEI.This week, the U.S. Congress received for review a renewal agreement for nuclear energy cooperation with Norway. When the pact comes into force, it will restore nuclear cooperation that lapsed when the original agreement expired in July 2014. Commonly known as a Section 123 agreement after the part of the Atomic Energy Act that governs international nuclear energy cooperation, a bilateral nuclear cooperation agreement secures nonproliferation guarantees and provides a framework for nuclear energy commerce. Given that Norway has no plans to operate a commercial nuclear power plant, some may ask, “What is the importance of Norway to the U.S. nuclear industry?” The answer lies 75 miles southeast of Oslo in the town of Halden, where the United States helped to build a 20 megawatt test reactor in 1958. Now supported by 19 member countries and partly financed by the OECD, the Ha

European decommissioning activity to rise 8% per year
The number of Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) projects in Europe is expected to rise 8% per year in the coming decade as low power prices dent operating profits and plants reach end of lifespans, Jorg Klasen, Director Nuclear Decommissioning Services at German operator EnBW Kernkraft, said. Power price pressures and national policy shifts have accelerated the number of decommissioning projects in recent years, and put pressure on some of Europe's largest utilities.

The ROP, Clear Thinking & All Things Nuclear
"Be the change that you wish to see in the world."  Mahatma GandhiChange has come fast and hard to the nuclear industry, indeed to the entire energy sector.  We are in a race to adapt to new realities: abundant, cheap natural gas; little or no growth in electricity demand; mixed signals about the importance of controlling carbon emissions; and market rules tied to the old world order that inadequately reward 24-7 reliability, fuel supply diversity, and carbon-free baseload generation.  In the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi, the U.S. nuclear industry is pursuing a thoughtful and ambitious program to simplify how we work together to ensure safety and reliability remain the clear and constant focus of our efforts.  It is inspiring to see how teams of experts from across the industry are, through the Delivering the Nuclear Promise initiative, sharing experience, good ideas and best practices to identify better ways to accomplish the myriad tasks required to maintain

Apple Falls Near the Nuclear Tree
Back in 2012, The New York Times noted a certain ethical laxitude about some of the biggest tech companies: Internet companies often cloak themselves in an image of environmental awareness. But some companies that essentially live on the Internet are moving facilities to North Carolina, Virginia, northeastern Illinois and other regions whose main sources of energy are coal and nuclear power, the report said. The report singles out Apple as one of the leaders of the charge to coal-fired energy. At the time, this just seemed silly. Companies needing a lot of electricity moved to states that had a lot of electricity or could easily generate it. If it came from nuclear energy, even if some people griped about it, so be it—believe it or not, if you need a lot of clean electricity, you couldn’t do better. That was 2012. How are things going in 2016? Apple is being criticized for trying to justify its placement of a data center in Ireland, by keeping it as far away from nuclear

Introducing “Generation Swipe”: Nuclear’s Newest Interns
The following is a guest post by Elizabeth McAndrew-Benavides, senior manager of strategic workforce planning. Elizabeth McAndrew-BenavidesInterns this summer will deliver more to the office than their energetic personalities, they will be bringing a new generation into the workforce. This year’s crop of interns includes the first wave of new post-Millennials who were born between the late 1990s through the 2010s. As we will see, these college students have grown up with a significant amount of their socialization being online and in a world where their schools are not always safe. It is now time for companies to understand what this new group of employees will bring to the table.This generation after the Millennials has yet to be named, but I like to think of them as Generation Swipe. From an early age, these young adults were able to “swipe a finger” and create Minecraft worlds. They swipe to watch videos and they swipe to chat with grandma.We know less about this new gene
