[04/10/2014] The Future of US-ROK Civil Nuclear Cooperation: Possible Directions and Mutual Interests

Since the signing of the first nuclear cooperation agreement between the US and Korea in 1956, the US-ROK civil nuclear partnership has undergone significant evolution—although Korea was at first entirely dependent upon the US for nuclear power technology, it has now established a reputation as a world class nuclear supplier. Currently, 23 NPPs supply approximately one-third of Korea’s total electricity generation, and the Korean nuclear industry is planning to follow up on its success in the UARead More...

[03/26/2014] US Capabilities and Self-Sufficiency in the Front End

In terms of the production of nuclear fuel, the US is self-sufficient only in fuel fabrication—US in situ recovery of uranium produces only a small percentage of uranium consumed in US reactors, US conversion capacity falls just short of satisfying domestic demand, and the 6 million SWUs of enrichment capacity that currently exists in the US falls short of US annual demand of 16 million SWUs. From the perspective of fuel procurement for nuclear power plants, the significant gaps between domestic produRead More...

[03/13/2014] Overview of Federal Renewable Electricity Deployment Incentives

Federal incentives are merely one of the many drivers that affect the US renewable electricity market. Other factors that affect US renewables deployment include state renewable electricity requirements, electricity demand growth, infrastructure replacement needs, and natural gas prices. Nevertheless, given the abundance of relatively cheap natural gas and only modest projections for electricity demand growth, federal financial and deployment incentives for renewable sources of energy will necessarily play Read More...

[02/26/2014] KEIA-GABI Forum on US and International Nuclear Energy Policy: The Role of Nuclear in a Diverse Energy Portfolio

President Obama’s all-of-the-above energy strategy has prompted firm US support for domestic nuclear energy projects and international collaborations in nuclear power. The administration’s current policy seeks to develop and maintain diversity in energy sources, of which nuclear plays an important function by providing low-carbon baseload electricity. The 100+ nuclear reactors in operation in the US presently provide 20% of the country’s electricity and 73% of its carbon-free electricity, Read More...
