[en] The 2020 edition of the World Nuclear Performance Report, published by World Nuclear Association, combines the Association's own data and analysis with data from the International Atomic Energy Agency's PRIS database. The report looks at long term trends in nuclear performance as weil as progress in new nuclear build.
[en] As we all start out on the road to what is now referred to as the 'new normal' - a world that will have to get on with life in the shadow of Covid-19 for some time to come-what better opportunity to take stock of how we have been caring for ourselves and our environment and to think about what we could do better.
[en] In February 2016 Wedberstein 7-X in Germany has demonstrated a fusion reaction which lasted for less than a second. Fusion reactor is very difficult to build and it is expensive. Here we have discussed the possibility for using divergent fusion reaction with the help of high power pulse laser. Fusion reaction happened at very high temperature and pressure. This was unattainable with normal heating and compression process. High pressure and high temperature must be maintained for certain duration to initiate and sustain fusion reaction. Now all above condition can be achieve using available high chemical explosive and high power laser beams.
[en] This paper reports about the main activities performed or under way in Italy in the field of plutonium utilization by ENEL (Italian State Electricity Agency) and CNEN (National Committee for Nuclear Energy).
[en] United States congressional members rolled out their "Green New Deal" in 2019 that calls for a rapid shift to carbon-free energy. As laid out by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Markey (D-MA), the Deal calls for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture to building efficiencies.
[en] Reluctant acceptance is a concept that explores acceptance of nuclear energy framed in the context of climate change risk. It allows survey respondents an option to express objection to nuclear energy while also recognizing a reluctant acceptance of it in light of the competing threat of the imminent climate crisis. Reluctant acceptance has been examined by Pidgeon et al., Bickerstaff et al., Corner et al., Teräväinen et al., Visschers et al., Truelove and Greenberg and Kim et al., Bickerstaff et al. write, “our objective was not to simply gather citizen responses to an already circulating political reframing but rather to explore the dynamic discursive practices by which people made sense of and negotiated what for most was a new way of thinking about the two environmental problems”. The use of the reluctant acceptance framing is typically aimed at identifying respondents who have changed their position on nuclear power from oppose to accept because of the climate change crisis. Yet there is potential for the ‘reluctant acceptance’ concept to be widened to support a more robust, two-sided conversation on nuclear energy and climate change. Doing so may open new channels of communication with stakeholders on their perception of the role of nuclear power in climate change mitigation.
