Neutrinos were first conceived of in a desperate ploy to save the conservation of energy in nuclear beta decay.  From a nuclear engineering perspective, they are an ever present but ultimately inconsequential by-products of nuclear fission.  But to particle physicists, nuclear reactors are an essential and extraordinarily bright source of neutrinos, which are responsible for some of the most important advancements of the last 70 years, from the discovery of the neutrino at the Savannah River’s P reactor in 1956, through current times when reactors are used as the source for studies of neutrino fundamental properties.  Advances in neutrino detector technology and a recent finding that neutrinos can be used to track the production of plutonium in the core have made it possible for particle physicists to contemplate giving back to the nuclear industry.  As a new type of non-invasive instrumentation, neutrino detectors may, for example, have a role to play in non-proliferation safeguard regimes, particularly for advanced reactors.  Ultimately, the potential of neutrino applications can only be properly assessed in a collaborative effort between particle physicists and nuclear engineers. This webinar reviews the discoveries and other major advances in neutrino physics that have been enabled by nuclear reactors, and explores the ways that neutrino detectors may be used to monitor reactors or as reactor instrumentation.

Once built, the VTR will be a one-of-a-kind capability that can perform tests and research simply not possible with today’s infrastructure.

During the webinar, Kemal Pasamehmetoglu, the executive director of the VTR program, will share an overview and update on milestones, including the recent CD-1 announcement. Immediately following, experts from industry, think tanks, government and the labs, and academia will participate in a panel discussion covering a range of topics, including U.S. competitiveness, energy innovations, research developments and new capabilities.

Small and micro-scale modular reactors have received considerable attention for their potential to reduce costs, load follow and meet electricity needs in places where the size of conventional reactor technologies is unwarranted. This small scale is particularly relevant in the developing world where large centralized grids are uncommon and the need for electricity is considerable. More than 1 billion people globally are currently estimated to live without access to any electricity. The Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for reliable, affordable and clean energy for all people by 2030, creating an additional imperative for rapid low carbon technological deployment. This talk will present a novel market analysis of near-term energy demand. We use state-of-the-art satellite imagery to identify regions with no night-time light as a proxy for electricity poverty, and ambient population to determine the number of persons in these regions. GIS is used to create corresponding maps showing the capacity needed to provide this degree of electricity as a function of location if only micro and mini-grids are available. Additional considerations including resilience to natural hazards, siting considerations and competitive technologies are discussed.

Many cities, states, utilities, and public commissions are setting energy standards that aim to reduce carbon
emissions. In order to realize a clean and resilient energy future, new methods of energy production,
distribution, and use will be required. The primary focus of the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) Program
on Integrated Energy Systems, led by researchers at Idaho National Laboratory (INL), has been to assess the
potential of integrated energy systems to enhance the flexibility and utilization of nuclear reactors alongside
renewable generators and, thereby, to maximize the use of the clean energy provided by these systems. This
work begins with the question: “What goals are we trying to achieve, and how will the produced energy be
used?” These questions must be addressed within the context of a specific deployment location, which has
implications relative to the electricity market structure, supply, and demand; available feedstock for industrial
processes; and available product markets. Product streams, ranging from potable water to hydrogen, fertilizer,
synthetic fuels, and various chemicals, have been considered. Each product stream has its own market and
market drivers and its own geographic location that would maximize profitability. Some of these products
would only require electricity to support production, while others require both thermal and electrical energy.
This webinar highlights work led by INL, in collaboration with other national laboratories and industry partners,
to evaluate integrated energy system options that utilize nuclear energy in new ways. By working with key
collaborators in the nuclear industry, these analytical studies are now becoming a reality in demonstration
projects.

For the first time ever, CEM11 events are virtual, open to one and all.  NICE Future will be hosting an event where you can learn the latest insights on how flexible nuclear energy systems will support deeper integration of nuclear and renewable energy in future clean power systems.  The NICE Future event showcases clean energy systems options through nuclear energy innovations.

Speakers will discuss how emerging nuclear energy breakthroughs can improve system flexibility, support the integration of higher shares of variable renewable energy, and ultimately lead to cleaner, more resilient power. The event launches a major new technical report by the initiative's Flexible Nuclear Campaign for Nuclear-Renewables Integration (FNC). The report has engaged experts from nine ministries, five multi-governmental organizations, and 14 other organizations. Recognizing the continuing health and economic recovery needs from the COVID-19 pandemic, speakers will also present nuclear energy innovations that advance clean air, clean drinking water, clean transportation fuels, and clean energy access in remote regions, while providing reliable and affordable energy.

The energy market is changing because of (1) the goal of a low-carbon energy system and (2) the expansion of low-operating-cost wind and solar PV that collapse electricity prices at certain times. We examine the changes in markets and requirements and alternative nuclear system designs with large-scale heat storage to enable base-load nuclear plants to provide variable electricity to the grid and heat to industry. In the U.S., the industrial demand for heat is about twice the total electricity production; thus, there are two major markets for nuclear energy in the U.S. The addition of heat storage enables integration of electricity and heat markets because it partly decouples in time heat production versus heat and electricity to customers. Separate from these considerations, large-scale heat storage has massive implications for grid resilience because energy production is partly decoupled from the grid.
