Nuclear Technology RD&D Roadmap
Following the recommendation in ERP’s Nuclear Fission Report in 2010, a project was set up to consider what such a roadmap might look like.
Nuclear Technology Roadmap Steering Group
The National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) led the development of this Roadmap and report on behalf of the project team consortium (EPSRC, ETI, NDA, NNL and ERP).
In September 2010 ERP published a report on nuclear fission that took a long-term view of nuclear as an energy source, looking at future fuel cycles, capacity and responsiveness as well as recognising security and proliferation issues.
The review identifies the opportunities from, and addresses the challenges to further development of bio-energy technologies by 2050.
