Introducing Repurposing Strategies for Retired Fossil-Fired Power Plants with Nuclear Power Plants Webinar Series

Several countries are considering, or planning constructions of nuclear power plants at, or near site of a retired fossil-fired power plant because of the benefits of re-using the existing infrastructure, such as the grid connection and heat sinks, as well as the workforce. In addition, a growing interest in use of nuclear power to mitigate climate change has also motivated countries to consider repurposing or repowering currently operating fossil-fired power plants with nuclear power plants (advanced reactors, such as small modular reactors and sodium cooled fast reactors), which could provide potential costs savings while also generating low carbon electricity and process heat.

This webinar series aims to introduce different approaches related to national strategies and policies of embarking in nuclear power programme and operating Member States. The endeavour will present experience from recent and ongoing work on this topic around the Globe. Such countries will provide good practices as well as lessons learned.

Economic Aspects of Repurposing Coal-Powered Plants to Nuclear Power Plants

This webinar will discuss economic considerations around the potential for repurposing retired or operating coal-fired power plants with nuclear power plants to support to climate change mitigation. It will provide an opportunity to highlight current case studies in this area, including potential economic benefits, identified challenges and possible solutions.

Repurposing Sites of Retired Fossil Plants with Advanced Nuclear Reactors for the Clean Energy Transition

This webinar is seeking to address the opportunity for nuclear power plants to transform carbon producing power sites to clean energy, while illustrating some case studies to serve for reflection on how retiring fossil power plants could be replaced by advanced nuclear power plants and their respective economic benefits, challenges and approaches adopted by key organisations to respond to project needs.

Webinar on Reimagining Energy Landscapes: Challenges and Opportunities in Repurposing Coal-Fired Power with Advanced Nuclear Reactors

This webinar will discuss siting considerations, including regulatory aspects, for repurposing coal-fired power plants with nuclear power plants. It will provide an opportunity to highlight some of the recent developments, published reports, and related assessments in this area, including potential benefits, challenges, and possible solutions.
