The Energy Debate Rages: Do Safety Concerns Spell Disaster for the Nuclear Energy Industry?

Share Article

The raging debate over nuclear power is fueled by safety considerations versus the fundamental need for cost efficient energy. Marketsensus announce the release of over 200 reports to help Nuclear Energy Industry professionals navigate the future of nuclear power.

Nuclear Energy Industry

Nuclear Energy Industry at Risk?

Nuclear power generation alone accounts for 15.7% of the world's electricity supply.

The development of nuclear power industry grew albeit primarily for military purposes and later for nuclear electricity generation led to the identification of uranium as one of the rare resources in the world. December of 1951 brought the first 100 KW of pure, relatively clean nuclear power to the civilian world thereby kick starting society’s campaign to slowly but decisively shift the global power resources to nuclear power future based systems. Today, nuclear power generation alone accounts for 15.7% of the world's electricity supply. Is our Nuclear Energy Industry under threat? Marketsensus research covers all aspects of the future of nuclear power

On a global scale, the big eight have a clear nuclear doctrine and defined roadmaps for how their society will produce and consume nuclear power. This circle is encircled by 56 more with civilian research facilities and 30 more which have around 435 commercial nuclear power plants with an installed capacity of 370 000 MWe. The present capacity is going to further inflate to the tune of almost 16% with around 60 power reactors already being planned and in stages of construction. It is but imperative that this energy resource of the future be understood in and harnessed in order to become the main workhorse of the industrialized economies of the future. Maketsensus reports on the global nuclear energy industry is an exhaustive document on this industry with focus on some areas as under:

a) Historic roadmap of nuclear energy right from 1930’s through the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s etc and the future of the nuclear power industry

b) Theoretical basics of nuclear reactors, comparative analysis of PWR vs BWR reactors, ABWR, ALMR, AHWR, GCR, AGCR,SCWR,LMFB and mining and extraction processes for nuclear fuel. Strategies for reprocessing, potency boosting.

c) Technical basics of how the ABWR is better than the BWR/6 generation reactors.

d) Reasons about the policy change to ensure lowering of the void coefficients of all RBMK reactors to +0.7 b and eventual closure.

e) The role, design, technical basics of Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators where long and unmanned, power is required even beyond solar cells.

f) Reasoning and identification basis of 238Pu for the purpose of fuel for RTG’s as compared to Americium-241 where 2.5mm shielding made a difference.

g) Advantages of new and upcoming reactor tech as ALMR, PBMR, MHTGR and their features with theoretical description.

h) SSTAR’s ready to define the future of small nuclear energy, safety and remote management features.

i) Commercial & economic demographics of the nuclear energy market and how almost 70% of the increased energy demand globally will come from the new economies of China and India.

j) Speculative interests of hedge funds in spot prices of U308 jumping almost 300% in a short span of time thereby increasing the stakes on nuclear fuel powered energy.

k) The role of nuclear hedging in commercial cycle planning.

l) Understanding the Cost function of nuclear energy, fuel and External Cost observation on nuclear energy vs coal, hydro, wind, gas wherein nuclear averages at almost 0.4 euro cents/ kWh.

m) Challenges to nuclear energy industry & Development of the nuclear safety consensus also how SSTAR’s may answer the proliferation debate with a special mention on Obama’s new nuclear policy.

n) Various regulatory initiatives such as AFC, Gen –IV,I- NERI and others including roll out milestones into the coming decade for the national energy policy of the U.S.

o) How smaller producers as the Netherlands, Belgium are balancing operating cost reductions by 10% & 17% to achieve competitiveness in deregulated energy markets. Effects of deregulation on nuclear power.

p) Country wise global map & analysis of the Nuclear Power Industry of the major producing 58 countries.

q) Profile of 50 major global companies and nuclear power utilities.

r) SWOT analysis of the big 11 global nuclear energy companies.
