Nuclear Power

Vision

A medium term (2020-2030) transition to Gen-III nuclear power plants will reduce the probability for core melts from 10⁻⁵/year to 10⁻⁷/year while keeping nuclear power the most cost efficient source of electricity with low CO₂ footprint. More advanced systems may in the long term (2030-2050) permit full recycling of long-lived radioactive waste, reducing the time scale of geological storage.

Challenges

To ensure technical safety of aging power plants. Improve fuel utilisation by a factor of 100 while maintaining good economy and high safety standards. Provide economical and safe solutions for recycling of waste by application of new materials.
