Metrology for New Generation Nuclear Power Plants

Society demands energy supplies that are secure, sustainable and of high quality. In the next decade, Europe is facing potential energy shortages as oil and gas supplies run down and nuclear power facilities age. Pressure to reduce the green house gas emissions has lead to a requirement for the development of a new generation of nuclear power plants in Europe.
This JRP will develop the necessary infrastructure to enable measurement of the parameters associated with new generation nuclear power plants, in the area of materials, temperature, neutron fluence, nuclear data and radiometric methods to ensure that energy suppliers and regulators can work towards an energy secure future within a metrology framework.
