NuScale Power, Prodigy Clean Energy and Kinectrics have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to explore and inform the development of a regulatory framework to address licensing and deployment of a Prodigy Marine Power Station (MPS). The MPS would integrate up to 12 NuScale Power Modules into a marine-based nuclear power plant system.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has made the full case for nuclear to be deployed rapidly to enable the phase out of coal in a new Nuclear Energy for a Net Zero World brochure. The organisation is taking it to next month's COP26 climate change meeting to argue for evidence-based policy and "ramped up" investment in nuclear.

Ghana has shown long-standing interest in the civilian uses of nuclear energy. Image courtesy Elliot Brown/Flickr. Five nuclear reactor vendors have responded to a request for interest issued by Ghana to collaborate with the African country in its planned nuclear power programme.

Local press reports, quoting an environment ministry official, did not name any companies, but said the vendors are from the US, Russia, Canada and South Korea.

The official said Ghana is aiming to build and operate commercial nuclear power plants in an effort to ensure affordable energy for industrial development and to help it meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement.

The energy ministry said the country had exhausted its hydro base source of energy, hence the need to explore other clean options such as nuclear power.

IAEA meeting examines potential for emerging technology The meeting was held to discuss innovations in the production and use of nuclear hydrogen. Courtesy A. Tahri/IAEA. Nuclear hydrogen can be a “game changer” in the fight against climate change by decarbonising heavy industry, energy storage and even synthetic fuel production as part of a clean energy transition, a side event at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s general conference in Vienna was told.

Mikhail Chudakov, IAEA deputy director-general and head of the department of nuclear energy, said in his opening remarks at the event – held to discuss innovations in the production and use of nuclear hydrogen – that a single 1,000 MW nuclear power reactor could produce more than 200,000 tonnes of hydrogen each year to fuel more than 400,000 fuel cell vehicles or more than 16,000 long haul fuel cell trucks.

Delegates explored developments in the coupling of nuclear power reactors with hydrogen production plants to efficiently produce both electricity and hydrogen as a cogeneration system, as well as how energy sector cooperation, supply chain and policy support are facilitating the progress of these projects.
