The Security of Energy Supply and the Contribution of Nuclear Energy

by Collective

What contribution can nuclear energy make to improve the security of energy supply? This study, which examines a selection of OECD member countries, qualitatively and quantitatively validates the often intuitive...


The Financing of Nuclear Power Plants

by Collective

Many countries have recognised that greater use of nuclear power could play a valuable role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. However, given the high capital cost and complexity of nuclear power plants,...


Strategic and Policy Issues Raised by the Transition from Thermal to Fast Nuclear Systems

by Collective

The renewed interest in nuclear energy triggered by concerns about global climate change and security of supply could lead to substantial growth in nuclear electricity generation and expanded interest in fast...


Considering Timescales in the Post-closure Safety of Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste

by Collective

A key challenge in the development of safety cases for the deep geological disposal of radioactive waste is handling the long time frame over which the radioactive waste remains hazardous. The intrinsic hazard...


Stability and Buffering Capacity of the Geosphere for Long-term Isolation of Radioactive Waste

by Collective

Geological settings selected as potential host formations for the deep geological disposal of radioactive waste are chosen for, among other assets, their long-term stability and buffering capacity against destabilising...


Natural Tracer Profiles Across Argillaceous Formations

by Collective

This technical report describes the results of the Nuclear Energy Agency's CLAYTRAC project, in which natural tracer data from nine sites was evaluated to assess potential impacts of disposal of radiological...


Radioactive Waste in Perspective

by Collective

Large volumes of hazardous wastes are produced each year, however only a small proportion of them are radioactive. While disposal options for hazardous wastes are generally well established, some types of hazardous...


Uranium 2009

by Collective

With several countries currently building nuclear power plants and planning the construction of more to meet long-term increases in electricity demand, uranium resources, production and demand remain topics...


Nuclear Production of Hydrogen

by Collective

Hydrogen has the potential to play an important role as a sustainable and environmentally acceptable energy carrier in the 21st century. This report describes the scientific and technical challenges associated...


Partnering for Long-Term Management of Radioactive Waste

by Collective

National radioactive waste management programmes are in various phases of siting facilities and rely on distinct technical approaches for different categories of waste. In all cases, it is necessary for institutional...


Towards Transparent, Proportionate and Deliverable Regulation for Geological Disposal

by Collective

These workshop proceedings highlight the significant amount of work accomplished over the past decade in delivering transparent, proportionate regulation for geological disposal, and identify important differences...


Risk Importance Measures in the Design and Operation of Nuclear Power Plants

by Ivan Vrbanic

In using risk-informed approaches for ensuring safety of operating nuclear power plants (NPPs), risk importance measures obtained from probabilistic risk assessments (PRAs) of the plants are integral elements...
