[en] In 2010, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) released a Nuclear Energy Technology Road-map which outlined the steps needed to accelerate the development of nuclear power and its role in achieve deep greenhouse-gas emissions reduction. Both the global energy sector and the outlook for nuclear have changed significantly since then and an update of this Road-map is currently underway. The IEA and NEA held a stakeholder dialogue meeting focused on nuclear develop in Asia on 25 February 2014 in Hong Kong. The meeting brought together key stakeholders from industry, government, finance and other relevant organisations from Asia and beyond to help define and prioritise key items to be discussed in the IEA/NEA's Nuclear Road-map Update. One of the expected outcomes of this intensive brainstorming and Road-map development session was to discus key targets, milestones, policy measures and other actions needed to support the development and deployment of nuclear power. The workshop was organized in 3 sessions dealing with: Session 1 - Technology development needs for nuclear (Reactor technology, Fuel cycle and decommissioning); Session 2 - Breakout Discussion: - Group I: Financing nuclear. This session focussed on today's reality for financing nuclear and the current economics of nuclear. Mechanisms such as government loan guarantees, vendor financing and role of export credit agencies were discussed. Participants were asked to share lessons learnt and current practices on financing nuclear as well as recommendations (if needed) for additional policy support or changes in technology development (e.g. SMR) which would facilitate greater deployment of nuclear technologies. - Group II: Nuclear regulation and safety. This session focussed on regulatory needs for enhanced security and regulation for new build programmes, institutional development requirements for new nuclear countries. Safety research following the Fukushima Daiichi accident were also discussed. Session 3: Overcoming barriers to nuclear build out. After a short presentation, a group discussion focussed on the following topics: Codes and standards; Licensing - harmonisation; Training and capacity development needs; Initiatives to facilitate introduction of new technologies (R and D, pre licensing, etc..). In a final discussion participants were invited to share their views on recommendations and key messages for the nuclear Road-map. This document brings together the 6 available presentations (slides) given at this workshop: 1 - Technology Road-map Overview and role of Nuclear in the IEA Scenarios (Cecilia Tam, IEA); 2 - Focus of Nuclear Road-map Update (Henri Paillere, NEA); 3 - Sustainable Cycle Solutions for smooth and optimized nuclear development (Remy Autebert, AREVA); 4 - Developing and Financing NPPs: Current Trends and Considerations (Paul Murphy, Milbank, Tweed, Hadley and McCloy LLP); 5 - IAEA approach on Nuclear Power introduction (Vincent Nkong-Njock, IAEA); 6 - An adequate industrial model around the operator to overcome barriers to nuclear build out (Didier Cordero, EDF)
[en] This publication proposes the 22. World Energy congress statements (official statement, the discussions of the future energy leader's programme, contribution of young French students and researchers, what works and does not work in energy efficiency policies in the world) and indicates its publications (the World Energy Trilemna, and World Energy Scenarios to 2050). The contributions of French speakers are then proposed on the following themes: vision and scenarios for the future, identifying business opportunities with resources and technologies, the energy trilemma or policy solutions to secure prosperity, and securing a sustainable energy future. Other contributions by company and government representatives are provided.
