The NRC staff will host a webinar to provide an opportunity for external stakeholders and the NRC staff to exchange information on the NRC’s development of a regulatory framework for advanced nuclear reactors. Additional information is available in the NRC White Paper titled “Questions Supporting ACRS and Public Interactions on Developing a Risk-Informed, Technology-Inclusive Regulatory Framework for Advanced Reactors” (Part 53 White Paper ADAMS Accession No. ML20195A270).

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.

​Just as in all other industries, sustainability is vital to nuclear energy production. Recycling of nuclear fuel contributes to the environmental and social pillars of that sustainability because it simultaneously improves natural resources utilization and waste minimization. This webinar provides additional insight to the consequences of repetitive fuel recycling and compares selected reactors based on their neutronics performance in the closed Th-U and U-Pu cycles.

The GAIN Clean Nuclear Energy for Industry Webinar Series highlights the innovations in nuclear energy and associated integrated-energy options that may be beneficial to a wide range of industrial energy applications. The intent is to develop connections between the nuclear community and the energy end-use community to communicate the benefits of clean, reliable, and resilient nuclear energy.

The third webinar in this series is co-sponsored by ANS Young Members Group and features the feasibility study led by The Nuclear Alternative Project (NAP), a non-profit formed by Puerto Rican engineers in the U.S. nuclear industry and involved a team of more than 20 consultants and industry advisors.  This study, highlighting SMRS and Microreactors for Puerto Rice, represents a first-of-a-kind collaborative effort focused on the need for next-generation nuclear reactors in response to Puerto Rico's House Resolution 1189.  In this webinar, Eddie Guerra and Luis Reyes will present the study's key findings with a special focus on applications for Puerto Rico's manufacturing sector and critical infrastructure needs.

A host of novel fuel and material concepts are being investigated as part of the GenIV
reactor development initiative. While many of these candidates are rooted in historical
programs from previous reactor development campaigns, most of these concepts were
never fully evalauted for long-term performance in non-LWR facilities. The performance
data that is needed for candidate material downselection, feasibility studies, and eventual
qualification is, currently, very costly in terms of monetary cost and human capital. The
use of an ‘all of the above’ strategy for performance assessment is needed to reduce the
cost of ushering materials through the qualification process. In this presentation, we will
discuss the efforts that are currently underway, and those planned for the near future, to
advance many of these candidates from concept to deployment. Visit: https://www.gen-4.org/gif/jcms/c_116771/daniel-labrier-flyer-04012020 for more informaton.

The objective of the GIF VHTR Hydrogen Production Project Management Board is to provide a collaborative environment among the signatories for the development, optimization and demonstration of economical large-scale hydrogen production processes that do not emit green-house gases through the use of nuclear energy. The main processes considered by the signatories include Sulphur-Iodine (S-I), High Temperature Steam Electrolysis (HTSE), Copper-Chlorine (Cu-Cl) and Hybrid Sulphur (HyS). The signatories include Canada, EU, France, Japan, Korea and the USA. China has been an observer, waiting to join the group formally, but contributing strongly to the developments. The S-I process has been demonstrated for short term operation by China, Korea and Japan. EU, France and the USA have been very active in HTSE. Canada has been focusing on the Cu-Cl Cycle with plans for demonstration of an integrated lab-scale system in 2021. This webinar will provide an overview of these activities and their relevance to mitigating global warming.
