Generation III+ Nuclear Energy

October 14, 2010 | 12:00 AM


The diversity and promise of so-called "3rd-plus" generation nuclear reactor designs is exemplified by the dozens of credible start-up nuclear technology companies, as well as in-house programs funded by major vendors. How is the emerging next generation of nuclear power technology different from previous designs? What scales can the new nuclear power plant designs operate at, how is waste dealt with, how do they address proliferation and other security concerns? How cost competitive are the latest nuclear energy technologies? Does modern nuclear energy technology have the potential to be a major disruptor to the global energy economy?
