Nuclear power developments in China and the world
The development of human society and technology is closely correlated to the means of energy acquisition, utilization method, efficiency, and spectrum of applications. High quality of life and sustainable socioeconomic development require a sustainable and reliable energy supply. Wealth, health, food, water, infrastructure, education, and even life expectancy itself strongly correlate with the consumption of energy per capita. Having an adequate, reliable, affordable, eco-friendly, and sustainable supply of energy is becoming more crucial for economic development and improving human well-being.

The Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced awardees to the Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP). With teams assembled and activities commencing, this panel will showcase some of the design features of different reactors being planned for near-term demonstration. This includes concepts from both the reactor demonstration as well as risk reduction initiatives, notably Natrium, Xe-100, Hermes, and the Molten Chloride Reactor Experiment (MCRE). The panel will primarily focus on the technical design specifications of the reactor systems as they pertain to neutronics, material, and thermal hydraulics.
