Nuclear Power plant applications.

Postby Aero » Sat Oct 04, 2008 2:00 am

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has received 19 Part I applications from 17 electric power companies for federal loan guarantees to support the construction of 14 nuclear power plants in response to its June 30, 2008 solicitation.



And the last comment (FYI) ends with:
The U.S. Department of Energy is sponsoring the Nuclear Power 2010 program, the objective of which is to license and build a new nuclear power plant in the U.S. by the end of this decade. Although the NRC is not involved in this developmental program, we are following DOE’s progress with great interest, since one of the most important steps in achieving its objective would be the submission of an application to the NRC for a combined operating license for an advanced reactor design. The next few years are likely to be busy and challenging as we once again turn our attention to licensing new plants.

Things could get interesting.

by the end of this decade. That does seem optimistic doesn't it. If it's going to happen, someone should know where by now.

IMHO, unless someone is already building one secretly in a remote place of the country :)
this is strictly impossible. Maybe it would have been possible in the 40s.
Perhaps one could technically build a LWR in two years, but go through the decision-making, funding and licensing processes? No way.

How good are your eyes? This graph displays the ratiotoxic inventory of PWR spent fuel over time. Most of the radiotoxicity comes from plutonium except in the first three hundred years. More comments on .
