2019, December, 9, 13:05:00NUCLEAR POWER FOR CLIMATE
recent reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the International Energy Agency (IEA), and the World Energy Council have all highlighted nuclear power's role in the energy transition;
2019, December, 9, 13:00:00NUCLEAR POWER FOR CO2 CUTTING
A new report by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology examined various scenarios for the decarbonization of the nation’s electricity sector. The MIT researcher’s simulations showed that availability of nuclear powered generation would help reduce the needed carbon price by up to 67 percent (to less than $40 per ton) in meeting a 90-percent reduction target (below 2005 levels) by 2050.
2019, December, 9, 12:55:00RUSSIA'S NUCLEAR FOR IRAN STOPPED
This makes it technologically impossible for TVEL to be further engaged in works at the Fordow facility. Uranium enrichment and stable medical isotope production cannot be sustained in the same room. Air and equipment are exposed to UF6 leftovers, making the produced stable medical isotopes unsuitable for medical purposes.
2019, December, 6, 13:25:00TREBLING NUCLEAR POWER
Renewable energy sources alone are not capable of fully decarbonising the economy, but they can complement nuclear energy in achieving this goal. The nuclear industry, led by World Nuclear Association, has set the Harmony goal for nuclear energy to provide 25% of global electricity by 2050. This will require trebling nuclear generation from its present level.
2019, December, 6, 13:20:00NUCLEAR POWER FOR AUSTRALIA
The use of nuclear energy is currently banned under federal law in Australia. Over half those surveyed - 54% - were unaware of this.
2019, December, 6, 13:15:00RUSSIA'S NUCLEAR FUEL FOR INDIA
TVEL JSC has shipped to India the final consignment of uranium fuel pellets for BWR reactors and thereby fulfilled the relevant contract with the Department of Atomic Energy of the Government of India. The total volume of the supplied fuel pellets exceeded 50 tons, all shipments have carried out in 2019.
2019, December, 6, 13:10:00RUSSIA'S NUCLEAR FUEL FOR BULGARIA
TVEL JSC and Kozloduy NPP have signed contractual documents for supplies of Russian nuclear fuel to the Bulgarian nuclear power plant for the period up to and including 2025.
2019, December, 4, 12:20:00RUSSIA'S NUCLEAR FOR AFRICA
“Rosatom [the Russian nuclear company] is prepared to help our African partners in creating a nuclear industry,” Putin said, with “the construction of research centers based on multifunctional reactors.”
2019, December, 4, 12:05:00CLEAN NUCLEAR POWER
Nuclear power provides about 10% of the world’s electricity and contributes one third of all low-carbon electricity.
2019, December, 2, 13:20:00INDIA'S RENEWABLE WILL UP
IEEFA forecasts India's cumulative renewable energy capacity to expand 17% year-on-year to 93.5GW by the end of 2019/20, adding a total of 13.5GW in 2019/20 (relative to just 5.7GW to-date).
2019, November, 29, 15:20:00JAPAN'S GREENHOUSE DOWN
Japan, the world’s fifth-biggest carbon emitter, has set a goal to trim emissions by 26% from 2013 levels to 1.042 billion tonnes by 2030. The latest figure represents a reduction of 11.8% from 2013 levels, data showed.
2019, November, 20, 12:00:00DRAMATICALLY IMPORTANT: NUCLEAR POWER
"We need to replace 70-90% of carbon resources of energy by 2050 in order to avoid overheating the Earth," he said, adding that two-thirds of the world's population still relies on biomass. An alarming projection, he said, is that by 2050 African nations will be consuming as much energy per capita as they do now, but their population will have doubled to 1.4 billion. "This will have dramatic implications for healthcare, employment and migration in the future," he said. "Only nuclear power can stop this migration by helping to develop the region."
2019, November, 20, 11:20:00POLAND'S NUCLEAR INVESTMENT $60 BLN
Poland is seeking a foreign investor for a 49% stake in the company that will be responsible for building and operating six reactors, Piotr Naimski, a top government official in charge of strategic energy infrastructure, said
2019, November, 20, 11:00:00CHINA'S NUCLEAR INVESTMENT $5.64 BLN
The total investment for the two new units will reach 39.45 billion yuan ($5.64 billion), and they are scheduled to go into operation in 2025 and 2026.
2019, November, 13, 12:25:00FRANCE'S NUCLEAR POWER DOWN 7.6%
EDF said total output since the start of the year stood at 317.3 TWh, down 1.3% compared with the same period a year ago.
