      CONSTRUCTION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS A Workshop on “NUCLEAR ENERGY RENAISSANCE” Addressing the Challenges of Climate Change and Sustainability May 8, ATHENS, GREECE ROBERT E. UHRIG Ph.D., P.E. Distinguished Scientist Emeritus Oak Ridge National Laboratory and The University of Tennessee. RADIATION AND NUCLEAR SAFETY AUTHORITY PT 10 Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) • Goal is to assess all kinds of impacts of the nuclear power plant to the environment during the lifetime of the plant (construction, operation, decommissioning) • EIA is based on environmental legislation.

      Sustainable energy is the practice of using energy in a way that "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.". Meeting the world's needs for electricity, heating, cooling, and power for transport in a sustainable way is widely considered to be one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. .   In addition, a Siting Council certificate is required to build most power plants. However, the council can approve the construction of certain power plants using an expedited process called a declaratory ruling. DEP has a voluntary pre-application process for power plants and other developments that require multiple permits.

This study of new technological alternatives is itself part of a broader investigation of methods of providing society with a much wider range of alternatives File Size: 5MB. Governmental organization for the regulation of nuclear power plants Safety in nuclear power plant siting Design for safety of nuclear power plants Safety in nuclear power plant operation Quality assurance for safety in nuclear power plants.

This IAEA Nuclear Energy Series publication provides guidance on the complex organizational, engineering, socioeconomic and environmental issues of siting. It complements the IAEA Safety Guides related to site selection and integrates existing IAEA documentation on the subject into a more compact and user friendly guidebook.

lifetime of the nuclear power plant. As a result, and after reviewing the existing publications, the IAEA decided to develop an integrated Nuclear Energy Series publication on managing siting activities for a nuclear power plant using recent Alternative siting requirements and practices for nuclear power plants book experience from States.

Safety of the plant personnel, public and the environment from radiological hazard is the most important consideration for siting of nuclear power plants. Like any other facilities, nuclear power plants are also designed to withstand the loading File Size: KB.

In order to select and plan the regulatory approach, the regulatory body considers the various regulatory approaches that are applied for nuclear power programmes elsewhere, taking into account the nuclear power plant size, the State’s legal and industrial practices and the guidance provided in the IAEA Safety : G.

Caruso. Request PDF | Nuclear power plants alternative sitings: A literature review and research gaps | Nuclear energy is a major part of power generation mix of many countries in the world. Nuclear Energy Agency surveyed the practices of regulatory authorities of 15 counties in the regulation of nuclear power plant siting (NEA/CNRA, ).

The purpose of the survey was to provide the member countries with practical information on the following 4 issues:Cited by: 1. Placement of a nuclear plant underground has been suggested as an alternative to present siting practices. It is postulated that the advantages of underground siting in some situations may more than compensate for added costs so that such facilities could be preferred even where surface sites are by: 1(a).

General factors in siting a nuclear power plant A nuclear power plant is basically a large electrical generating facility.

As such it shares a number ofsiting factors or requirements with large fossil-fueledplants. Among these are: the need for a supply ofwater for the turbine condenser and other cooling needs.

Siting of nuclear facilities. Nuclear power plant safety. Siting is the term used to describe the process to select where a nuclear installation is built and whether the decided location is suitable for it. Siting is one of the important decisions in the early stage of a planned nuclear energy project.

Major reactor accidents are still expected to be rare occurrences, but nuclear safety is largely a matter of faith. a matter of fact, the Nuclear Renaissance has already begun – the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) approved an early site permit application for the Clinton Power Station in Illinois (Exelon Power Corporation) in March As the scope of the nuclear energy is expanded, the role of materials is at the front and center.
