  • Nuclear Power and Energy Security

    World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards in rapidly growing countries. The last years, we routinely hear about a 'renaissance' of nuclear energy. The recognition that ...

  • Preparing the Ground for Renewal of Nuclear Power

    This conference proceedings explores issues surrounding the replacement of existing nuclear power plants when they reach the end of their useful life. Topics covered include: Nuclear competitiveness regarding politics and power plant evolution; social acceptance regarding communication, information, waste, and safety proliferation; and ...

  • The Nuclear Imperative

    In this well documented global wake-up call, nuclear physicist Jeff Eerkens explores remedies for the impending energy crisis, when oil and natural gas are depleted. Because burning coal worsens the problem of global warming, alternate energy sources must be instituted. The Nuclear Imperative demonstrates with scientific documentation that solar, ...

  • The Challenges to Nuclear Power in the Twenty-First Century

    This volume is the proceedings of the Global Foundations Inc.'s 22nd International Energy Forum, held November 5-6, 1999, and is highlighted by presentations by nuclear experts from around the world, including several officials of the US Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The papers address the need for nuclear energy ...

  • Environment and Nuclear Energy

    Developed from the Global Foundation's International Conference on Environment and Nuclear Energy, held in October 1997, this volume examines the impact of nuclear energy on regional and global environmental issues under a variety of scenarios. These include competition in deregulated energy environments, constraints levied upon use of fossil ...

  • Emerging Demands for the Safety of Nuclear Power Operations: Challenge and Response

    Nuclear power operations throughout the world face increasing international scrutiny from monitoring groups, government agencies, and the general public. Changing technologies, regulations, and public attitudes about this power source have given rise to new challenges and possible solutions within the ...

  • High-Chromium Ferritic and Martensitic Steels for Nuclear Applications

    The desire to reduce generating costs by increasing thermal efficiency in power plants has resulted in a need for materials with improved high-temperature properties. Advanced ferritic/martensitic steels are prime candidates for such applications. Although these alloys were developed for application in nuclear power plants because of their low ...

  • Radiation Embrittlement of Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel Steels: An International Review

    STP 909 has sixteen peer-reviewed papers divided into four sections that reflect changes in the nuclear power industry occurring since 1981, including escalating capital requirements and a growing worldwide dependence on nuclear power for electricity production. The four sections of this book are: • Overview of National Programs • ...

  • Radiation Embrittlementand Surveillance of Nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessels: An International Study

    STP 819 presents an international view on this subject drawing particularly on experience in laboratory studies and operating nuclear power plants in the USA and Europe. Of particular interest to the reader is the information imparted on reactor vessel embrittlement determination through periodic surveillance of specimens exposed in operating ...

  • Powering China’s Development: The Role of Renewable Energy

    SummaryChina’s need for secure, affordable, and environmentally sustainable energy for its 1.3 billion people is palpable. In 2006, China’s energy use was already the second highest in the world, having nearly doubled in the last decade, and its electricity use is growing even faster, having doubled since 2000. With both ...

  • Analysis of Reactor Vessel Radiation Effects Surveillance Programs

    Many factors have combined to accelerate the programs of the members of the electric power industry for the erection of power stations using nuclear ...

  • Marine Radioactivity

    This book on Marine Radioactivity sets out to cover most of the aspects of marine radioactivity which have been the focus of scientific study in recent decades. The authors and their reviews divide into topic areas which have defined the field over its history. They cover the suite of natural radioisotopes which have been present in the oceans ...

  • Energy Law and Regulation in the European Union

    This comprehensive looseleaf service offers a complete guide to all aspects of the economic and competitive regulation of energy utilities in the European Union. Keeping you up-to-date on the regulation of coal, gas, electricity, and nuclear power on a country-by-country basis, it focuses on the national laws of the following major European ...

  • Our Renewable Future - Laying the Path for One Hundred Percent Clean Energy

    The next few decades will see a profound energy transformation throughout the world. By the end of the century (and perhaps sooner), we will shift from fossil fuel dependence to rely primarily on renewable sources like solar, wind, biomass, and geothermal power. Driven by the need to avert catastrophic climate change and by the depletion of easily ...

  • Atomic Energy Costing

    This book deals with atomic energy costing on three levels: patterns, parameters, and politicization of atomic energy costing. The Introduction provides an overview of some of the debates on the early costing of atomic energy. Chapter 1 examines economic costing and economic consequences; the issue of economic control of atomic energy by ...

  • Mars

    The manned mission is seen as a first step towards a Mars surface exploration base-station and, later, establishing permanent settlement. The location and use of Mars’s natural resources is vital to enable cost-effective long-duration human exploration and exploitation missions as well as subsequent human colonization. Planet resources include ...
