The Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP) was officially launched on 21 September 2007 in Brussels. This Technology Platform aims at coordinating Research, Development, Demonstration and Deployment (RDD&D) in the field of nuclear fission energy. It gathers stakeholders from industry (technology suppliers, utilities and other users), research organisations including Technical Safety Organisations (TSO), universities and national representatives.
SNETP Vision Report
The Vision Report of the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform was distributed at the Launch Conference. It reflects a consensus among a large group of stake-holders on the priorities of RDD&D in the field of nuclear fission, addressing the renaissance of nuclear energy with the deployment of Generation III reactors, and the development of Generation IV systems, both fast neutron reactor systems with fuel multi-recycling for sustainable electricity-generating capability and (Very)High Temperature Reactors for other applications of nuclear, such as production of hydrogen or biofuels. Important issues such as the safety of nuclear installations and the responsible management of waste are also addressed, as well as other issues which are crucial to the success of nuclear energy in the 21st century: education and training, research infrastructures, material research and numerical simulation – and funding.
