Technology Assessment: Nuclear Reactors: Status and Challenges in Development and Deployment of New Commercial Concepts
Timothy J. Persons (au); Frank Rusco (au)
Energy demand in the U.S. is expected to continue to grow over the coming decades, and the Department of Energy (DOE) considers nuclear energy to be one way to help meet this increased demand without producing air pollution. However, the current domestic commercial nuclear reactor fleet, consisting of 99 large light water reactors (LWRs) that provide about 20% of U.S. electricity, is aging, and some reactors have shut down. LWRs use light, or ordinary, water to cool the reactor. New reactor concepts are under development as alternative energy options. This report discusses (1) the status of light water small modular reactor (SMR) and advanced reactor concepts under development; (2) the intended benefits of these new reactor concepts; and (3) the challenges associated with developing and deploying these new types of reactors. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
