NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

The paper describes research needs in primary R&D areas for the family of dual-coolant lead-lithium (DCLL) blankets. Associated key scaling parameters are introduced and evaluated under conditions of FNSF, ITER and DEMO and also for the existing non-fusion MHD facilities, using the MaPLE loop at UCLA as an example. Comparisons among these parameters are recommended for measuring the R&D progress on the pathway from the present experimental facilities to FNSF. Possible experiments both in the existing facilities and FNSF are discussed along with the flow diagnostics.
