The Future of Nuclear Power – Growth or Stagnation?
The 5th Edition of Research Reports International's The Future of Nuclear Power - Growth or Stagnation? report is a 50-page overview of the renewed interest in new nuclear power plant development around the world.
For almost 30 years, development of new nuclear power plants has stagnated in the West. However, in recent years, interest has been rekindled in this generation source, which provides emissions-free, baseload electricity. This report seeks to provide the reader with an understanding of why nuclear power is seeing a global resurgence with new development occurring in countries which long ago seemed to have given up on new nuclear power. It also looks at the impact of the March 2011 Tohoku earthquake and its impact of nuclear's revival in the West. In doing so, the report provides a concise look at the challenges faced by nuclear power, the ability of advanced nuclear reactors to address these challenges, and the current state of nuclear power generation.
Topics covered in the report include:
An overview of the current status of nuclear power and its use in the world today
An analysis of why nuclear power development stagnated in the West over the last 30 years
An evaluation of the factors driving a global resurgence in nuclear power development
An analysis of the technological trends which have improved reactor performance and safety
A description of nuclear power technology including existing reactors, as well as 3rd and 4th generation designs
An evaluation of the barriers that continue to hinder deployment of nuclear power plants in the West
A review of the economics of new nuclear power projects
Profiles of the key nuclear power projects under development around the world
