Canadian plant offtake contract spurs cost-cutting digitization projects
Bruce Power’s eight Canada deuterium uranium (Candu) reactors have a total capacity of 6.3 GW and supply more than 30% of Ontario's electricity from a site situated north-west of Toronto. In December 2015, Bruce Power signed an amended long-term nuclear Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) agreement with Ontario's Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO) at a price of CA$65.73/MWh (US$48.5/MWh), up slightly from the previous contract price of CA$64.90/MWh.Related Content: US utilities must commit to digitization to cut operating costs by 30%Industrial internet turns Big Data boom into operator profitsNew York carbon credits keep FitzPatrick online; Utah selects site for first SMRCalifornian plant to close on renewables growth; EDF backs Hinkley C despite BrexitImage: Image Caption: Bruce Power's offtake contract with the Ontario grid operator will support a suite of investments designed to improve competitiveness.Channels: Operations & Maintenance


Why Saving New York's Nuclear Reactors is Good for Consumers & The Environment
Matt WaldThe following is a guest post from Matt Wald, senior director of policy analysis and strategic planning at NEI. Follow Matt on Twitter at @MattLWald.Saving the reactors is good for consumers and good for the environment.Independent analyses show that the modest payments needed to keep nuclear reactors in the state’s supply mix will mean sharply lower electricity prices, and are the cheapest way to hold down carbon emissions. The Brattle Group, a consulting firm that specializes in energy, found that electricity in New York would cost $1.7 billion a year extra if the reactors closed. The reason is that the reactors’ output would be replaced by more expensive power. This is inherent in the method that New York uses to set prices: a computer totals up all the available resources, ranked by price, and the level of demand. The computer, which belongs to the New York State Independent System Operator, determines which generators are needed to satisfy demand, and whatever price







Vermont reactor dismantling accelerated to 2021; GE Hitachi joins forces with Southern Nuclear
  Entergy sells Vermont Yankee to accelerate decommissioning Entergy has agreed to sell the closed 620 MW Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant and transfer plant licences to the NorthStar group in a deal which will "accelerate decommissioning and site restoration by decades," Entergy said in a statement November 8. In addition, Entergy will transfer all of Vermont Yankee's spent nuclear fuel to on-site dry cask storage by 2018, two years earlier than previously planned, it said.Related Content: US operators urged to decommission immediately to prevent cost hikesUS operator contracts out decom work to speed progress, prioritize consumersMoltex Energy sees UK, Canada SMR licensing as springboard to AsiaWestinghouse targets first SMR within a decade using '100% modularity'Image: Image Caption: (Image credit: Gwengoat)Channels: Small Modular ReactorsDecommisioning

As Hurricane Matthew Approaches Florida, Nuclear Plants Prepare (Bumped with Update)
Matt WaldThe following is a guest post from Matt Wald, senior director of policy analysis and strategic planning at NEI. Follow Matt on Twitter at @MattLWald.When hurricanes approach, experts tell people to stock up on drinking water and on food that doesn’t require refrigeration, top off their car gas tanks and batten down the hatches. Nuclear reactors also make preparations, with a more formal procedure. With Hurricane Matthew approaching Florida's coast, those procedures are already well advanced.Plant operators make sure their fuel tanks are topped off too. In this case, it’s diesel fuel, for the emergency generators that would start up and provide electricity for on-site needs if the high-voltage grid went down. The diesels are tested at regular intervals, in foul weather or fair, to assure a reliable back-up supply of electricity. Plant workers secure anything that could blow away. The plants are prepared to house and feed a full complement of workers, who would stay at t







Why There Is No Silver Bullet in Energy Policy
Matt L. WaldAt 4:00 p.m. US EDT, Matt Wald, senior director of policy analysis and strategic planning at NEI, will deliver a speech in Kennewick, Washington at Energy Northwest’s 2016 Public Power Forum. The speech will be streamed live on the company's Facebook page. We're sharing an excerpt below. As always, please follow Matt on Twitter at @MattLWald.The energy business is sometimes prone to the silver bullet syndrome, the belief that there’s a single solution in hand if only we’d embrace it. Back when Spencer Abraham was secretary of energy, in the beginning of the Bush administration, he called it the “flavor of the month” club. He said that at various times, methanol, low temperature fuel cells, high temperature fuel cells, superconductors, thin film pv, ethanol from non-food sources, etc, etc, were going to save us.Today we’ve got new silver bullets, new flavors of the month. Well, I’d like to be unfashionable here. (Actually my wife assures


To Give Developing Nations Clean Air, Give Them Nuclear Energy
Matt WaldThe following is a guest post from Matt Wald, senior director of policy analysis and strategic planning at NEI. Follow Matt on Twitter at @MattLWald.On Halloween, millions of American kids carried little orange UNICEF boxes from door to door, collecting coins to help provide poor children with food and medicine. But children in the developing world need more. A UNICEF report issued Oct. 31 shows that in addition to the money, the clean air in the boxes would have helped, too. Bad air now rivals malaria and unsafe water as a cause of premature deaths.UNICEF is shedding a light on air quality in the developing world.*The problem cries out for nuclear energy.The authors of the report estimate that 300 million children live in areas with outdoor air pollution at least six times higher than United Nations standards. That research is based on satellite imagery of outdoor air; millions more live in households where the indoor air is heavy with smoke from cookstoves.Diseases that are
