Cost drivers of nuclear steam cycle construction
Interest in reducing carbon emissions around the world continues to climb. As a complement to the increasing deployment of variably generating renewables, advanced nuclear is commonly shown in net-zero grid modeling for 2050 because it represents firm electricity production that can flex in output with load demands.1 However, these projections are challenged by the high levelized cost of electricity associated with legacy nuclear construction, which is often more than double that of modern combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants.

The Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Distinguished Service Award recognizes the outstanding participation in the leadership of the Division or in public outreach activities representing the division.
An article detailing the achievement will be published in RadWaste Solutions, and a blog post commemorating the achievement will be submitted to the ANS Nuclear Cafe.
The award consists of a plaque given at the ANS Annual Meeting.
This award was established by the Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Division (FCWMD) as a Division-Administered award in 2014.
Nominations must include the completed nomination form accompanied by the following supporting documents:
Nomination forms and supporting documents (in Word or Adobe Acrobat) should be emailed to the FCWMD chair.
For more information, please visit the Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Division website.
Worthy candidates will be selected by a subcommittee headed by the FCWMD chair, and composed of the vice-chair, treasury/secretary, and ex-officio chair.
The final decisions on candidates will be decided by vote of the FCWMD executive committee.
