An Arc to the Future via COP21
Yesterday, NEI and the Christian Science Monitor sponsored a public meeting to offer a preview of the upcoming COP21 conference. It proved to be exceptionally edifying because the speakers cut straight through the rhetoric surrounding the conference to discuss what is most likely to be accomplished rather than what might be wished for. Let’s set the table for new comers. The COP21 conference intends to bring together as many as 195 world leaders to sign an agreement to reduce carbon dioxide/greenhouse gas emissions consistent with limiting temperature rise to 2 degrees Celsius by 2100.  The Paris accord, if it is finalized and the signatory countries hold to their plans, will not accomplish this. According to Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, the agreement already hammered out limits temperature rise to 2.7 to 3 degrees Celsius. That sounds like a minor difference, but it is not – the impacts on world populatio

Get to Know Our Veterans
Veterans are unique members of American society. I am lucky to have served in the military. I had the opportunity to experience firsthand things most people only read about. From the threat of North Korean nuclear proliferation to tension in the South China Sea to patrols in the Strait of Hormuz, my six years in the Navy left me with skills, experiences and perspectives you cannot find anywhere else.Jon BreedIn exchange for six years as a Naval Officer I received a world class education at no cost. I was challenged in a leadership role at a young age and I grew as a professional. When I began working for the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) last January, I was surprised by the number of veterans I found in the industry. From power plants to utility infrastructure to corporate America, I was encouraged to learn that our industry not just prioritizes but actively seeks veterans. The program Troops to Energy Jobs, for example, is an energy industry initiative that provides veterans with a r

Programming Note: The White House Summit on Nuclear Energy
This has certainly been a busy week for exploring the intersection of nuclear energy and policymaking. First, there was the NEI/Christian Science Monitor presentation on the COP21 conference (see post below for more on that) and today, the focus shifts to the home front with a White House Summit on Nuclear Energy. Not to waste your time (too much), here is the link to the live stream, which will presumably go live nearer  1:00 pm EST, when the summit kicks off. Here is NEI’s press release on the summit. If you can’t watch the video stream at work, perhaps you can follow NEI’s twitter feed – It’s also on NEI’s home page. See you there, if only virtually.

NuScale targets SMR cost below $90/MWh on wider deployment
Oregon-based NuScale moved early on design certification for its Small Modular Reactor (SMR) and plans to deliver its first commercial plant in late 2023 at a Levelised Cost of Electricity (LCOE) of $100/MWh (£65/MWh). The 600 MW plant is to be built up of 50 MW modules and installed in Idaho, delivered to owner-operator Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) to coincide with expected closures of fossil-fuelled generating assets.Related Content: Plant cyber security questioned; UK SMR offer launched; US' Terrapower to develop fast reactor with ChinaNuScale Outlines Multiple Applications of Low Cost SMR PlantsNuScale, NRC tackle key SMR design certification points ahead of 2016 filingImage: Image Caption: Widespread deployment could see the levelized costs of SMRs approach those of gas-fired units, depending on fuel prices.

UK to steer plutonium processing projects by year end
The UK government is deciding whether to re-use or dispose of the world’s largest stockpile of used civil plutonium stocks, located at the Sellafield reprocessing and waste facility in Northwest England. The stocks are currently estimated at around 130 metric tons and are expected to rise to 140 metric tons when reprocessing operations are completed.Image: Image Caption: Areva, Candu Energy and GE Hitachi are competing to re-use the UK's plutonium stockpile.

Westinghouse seeks UK SMR deal; US nuclear capacity to rise by 2020; Lloyds aids China on seabound SMR
Westinghouse proposes UK SMR partnership Westinghouse has proposed to partner the UK government in the licensing and deployment of its Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technology. "The unsolicited proposal outlines a shared design and development model under which Westinghouse would contribute its small modular reactor conceptual design and then partner with UK government and industry to complete, license and deploy the design," the US firm said in a statement October 20.Related Content: NuScale targets SMR cost below $90/MWh on wider deploymentUS plants show record efficiency in extreme weather conditionsPlant cyber security questioned; UK SMR offer launched; US' Terrapower to develop fast reactor with ChinaImage: Image Caption: (Image credit MichaelUtech)Channels: Waste ManagementNew BuildOperations & MaintenanceSmall Modular ReactorsSupply ChainDecommisioning

TerraPower: At The Nexus of New Nuclear Technology and Chinese Trade
TerraPower is the nexus of several intersecting nuclear topics, including new technology and the global marketplace. The company, which is developing what it calls a traveling wave reactor, made a deal with the China National Nuclear Corp. to build a prototype traveling wave reactor and then a commercially-scaled version of it for deployment. At the same time, the U.S.-China agreement on commercial nuclear energy cooperation entered into force over this past weekend. The required congressional review period has ended, and the two governments have concluded diplomatic exchanges that set the agreement in motion. Daniel Lipman, NEI's vice president for suppliers and international programs, said this about the agreement. "Through 2040, the direct economic benefit to the United States from this renewed agreement with China is expected to be between $70 billion and $204 billion, with 20,000 to 45,000 American jobs supported annually. In addition, this commercial relationship w

US waste storage development hinges on political push
The biggest obstacle to the commercial viability of consolidated interim storage facilities in the United States is politics, Pierre Oneid, Holtec International Senior Vice President and Chief Nuclear Officer, told Nuclear Energy Insider. “It’s not a technical issue, it’s a political issue,” Oneid said. There are people out there that don’t want us to exist. We need to get to the Hill and get them moving. That’s the strategy. We’re a trillion dollar industry, but our scorecard on the Hill is almost negative.”Related Content: German operators seek gov’t plan on waste storage as they cost up shutdownsUK to steer plutonium processing projects by year endImage: Image Caption: A new legislative basis for commercial storage needs to marry differing approaches in the two Houses.
