As we enter the third decade of the 21st century, the nuclear industry has already gone through significant changes. Early in the century, there was keen interest in a “nuclear renaissance” driven by increasing fossil fuel prices and growing concern about greenhouse gas emissions. This anticipation of a rebirth of the nuclear industry was seriously damaged by the accident at the Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan in 2011, as well as concerns about the commercial viability of new or expanded nuclear power programmes in a number of countries. However, support remains for nuclear technology, including for the next generation of nuclear reactors, for reasons such as addressing the challenges of climate change.
The security implications associated with these new reactors, advanced reactors (Generation IV), need to be identified and addressed as early as possible. The design and technological choices will impact the risk picture and might require evolution in the regulatory approach. Considering nuclear security from an early stage will support the acceptance and successful implementation of this new technology. One key milestone for the sustainable operation of these new facilities is to reduce the cost of security without compromising safety or security.
The purpose of this webinar was to review and discuss all security matters related to Advanced Reactors and present the recently published WINS Special Report on Security of Advanced Reactors. These are the main points that were addressed:
