Committee to evaluate nuclear power option for Norway

World Nuclear News reports that Norway is considering nuclear power production.

The C3 Take
  • Norway has had a de facto moratorium on nuclear power production since the 1970s.
  • Norway’s government has established a 12-person committee to assess the potential role of nuclear power in the country’s energy mix, driven by the need for emission-free and stable energy sources, and growing interest from private actors and municipalities.
  • Norsk Kjernekraft has said that it wants to construct a nuclear power plant consisting of small modular reactors (SMRs) with a total output of 1500 MW in Taftøy Næringspark in Aure and Heim municipalities.

“‘The committee shall provide an updated knowledge base on various types of nuclear power technology, technological maturity, assumed time perspective for scale-up and commercial availability, and costs. An account must also be given of relevant investment factors and requirements for infrastructure, including the need for network connection and what requirements must be made for a suitable location.'”
