[en] The following topics are discussed: Education concept (Educational system; Types of education and training; Education and training groups); Qualifications and competencies (Staff groups); Certifications, licences and authorisations; Educational and training facilities, training programmes; educational plans, education and training assessments, records. (P.A.)
[en] The need for the development of VSMR technologies to provide a safe, reliable, GHG emissions free, and affordable source of electricity for remote off-grid communities and remote industrial applications such as mining is growing both in Canada and globally. To effectively market these technologies, it will be required to construct and license a FOAK demonstration reactor to show that the reactor technology is safe and reliable. Pinawa is prepared to be the host community for VSMRs at AECL's Whiteshell Laboratories, and is prepared to be the Demonstration Remote Community. Pinawa would be powered by the VSMR and the project would include other facilities, such as a greenhouse operation to grow fresh produce, to show that a VSMR project would not only provide safe, reliable, and affordable power, it will also enhance the quality of life of remote communities. This will assist VSMR vendors gain Social License for their technology. (author)
[en] This summary provides a view on safety and operational aspects, as addressed in the summaries of coolant characteristics (see Section 3 of this TECDOC), coolant confining structures (see Section 4 of this TECDOC) and interfaces (see Section 5 of this TECDOC), because they are key cornerstones for licensing of a nuclear facility. Growing international nuclear safety requirements for operation and additional considerations for anticipated events demand more sophisticated approaches for nuclear safety demonstration. This section is divided into two blocks: – Inventory control, accountancy and qualification procedures; – Enveloping safety analysis.
[en] The Conference theme of Meeting the Challenges to deploy Next Generation Advanced Reactors and SMRs will be addressed specifically as they pertain to Licensing these reactors in Canada. Lessons learned from licensing other power reactors in Canada as well as first of a kind facilities such as the Low and Intermediate Level Waste Deep Geologic Repository will be explored. The Canadian regulatory framework has been evaluated for its readiness in licensing these designs and the results will be presented.
[en] As the global community strives to curb carbon emissions from the energy sector, focus has sharpened on the role nuclear energy can play in the effort throughout the 21. century. While the light water reactor fleet provides the nuclear generation backbone for meeting future capacity needs and emission goals, more than half of the world's nuclear power plants have surpassed 30 years in service. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), in collaboration with research entities around the world, helps turn the world's carbon neutrality challenges into opportunities. EPRI's work delivers research to answer key questions about modernization efforts that can provide safe and cost-effective life extensions for long-term operation, increase operational flexibility to support stable power grid dynamics, reduce nuclear power plant operating costs, and the examine the latest reactor technologies for more viable new nuclear power plant construction.

[en] SMR Technology Forum has identified a number of issues relevant to the development of a small modular reactor. Some of these are as follows. Principles to guide development of an alternative approach (as per REGDOC 2.5.2). Examples of graded approach application for SMRs is needed. Past experience with licensing research reactors, prototypes and demonstrations. Guidance on core damage Frequency and approach for probabilistic safety assessment. Use of inherent material properties. Guidance on how to build a safety case with consideration for inherent material properties is needed. Demonstration and application of defence-in-depth. Guidance is needed to support development of the safety case as well as safety classification. Could benefit from understanding the configuration management aspects between the conceptual design phase and when the design reaches maturity; vendor versus licensee responsibilities.
[en] This document is the public inquiry file regarding the project of a 2,7 MW ground photovoltaic power plant made of about 9000 solar panels distributed over 450 arrays covering a 5 hectares surface on the territory of the municipality of Campsas (Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie region, France). It comprises: the public inquiry notice, the public inquiry file (purpose, project summary, impacts on the environment and the population), the answers made by the project owner to the observations made during the public inquiry, and the opinion of the environmental authority regarding the impact study
[en] This document is the public inquiry file regarding the project of a 13 MW ground photovoltaic power plant made of about 30000 solar panels covering a 18,8 hectares surface shared on 3 sites located on the territory of the municipality of Albias (Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie region, France). It presents, first, the general framework, the organisation and results of the inquiry, the detailed examination of opinions and observations, and the sustainable development consistency of the project. Then, the detailed environmental impact study is provided with its non-technical summary
