Flexible Nuclear Campaign
LucidCatalyst is providing support and staffing for the Flexible Nuclear Campaign led by EFH, EON, and NREL, which is a campaign of the NICE Future Initiative of launched at the 9th Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) in 2018. NICE Future is a global effort led by the United States, Canada, and Japan to ensure nuclear energy receives appropriate representation in high-level discussions about clean energy, as well as promotes international collaboration on advanced nuclear technologies, engaging experts from more than 35 countries and 80 organisations to foster innovative thinking on future nuclear power uses and applications in clean energy systems.
The objective of the Flexible Nuclear Campaign is to provide an understanding of the economic benefits of advanced nuclear to a wide spectrum of participating countries, including the qualitative and quantitative benefits (e.g., $/MW and $/MWh) of nuclear reactors with highly-flexible power output across a range of select power markets.
The key focus is to model the revenue opportunities for flexible nuclear power stations in various parts of the world and communicate the cost and technical performance requirements back to government stakeholders, as well as to design teams responsible for developing advanced generation IV reactors.
The Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) is a high-level global forum to promote policies and programs that advance the deployment clean energy technology.
