This page contains some draft elements of the Nuclear Energy System Assessment (NESA) Support Package, i.e. documents, input tables for assessment and an Excel file called NEST, that have not yet been edited by IAEA. Neither IAEA or any other organization or individual can be held responsible for the draft material.
