Power-technology.com has published an online magazine with a report this month Nuclear’s Next Phase. It examines the possibilities for future nuclear power, including fission, fusion, fast breeders and high temperature gas reactor proposals.
Steve Kidd, director of strategy and research at the World Nuclear Association, looks at what has changed in nuclear power since the year 2000.
Finding fast fusion
Professor Steven Cowley of the UK fusion programme UKAEA Culham talks about the current challenges for fusion and how his team is working to overcome them.
Fusion is energy’s future
Professor Steven Cowley is certain that nuclear fusion is the only truly sustainable solution to the fuel crisis. In this video he explains why fusion will work.
Fast breeders key to fertile nuclear future
Efforts are increasing to fast track the development of a new generation of nuclear reactors. David Binning investigates fast breeder reactors, which convert spent fuel back into energy.
HTGR: A positive reaction
Will Dalrymple talks to Dan Keuter, Entergy Nuclear vice president of planning and innovation, about HTGR’s future.
New build and investment opportunities: The top players
Tony Ward looks at how Ernst & Young group’s similar new-build programmes together and assesses the investment opportunities.
