System Requirements For Alternative Nuclear Technologies - Project Summary Report

S. Firggens, G. Doyle, I. Scoot, R. Ashley, D. Dodd & M. Goodfellow
Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) are defined as nuclear power reactors with a maximum electrical output below 300MWe.They are generally considered to have distinct characteristics that make them different from conventional large reactors (LRs), such as modular design with pre-fabrication in offsite factories and the potential to deploy multiple reactors at the same site to form larger power plants. Many SMRs are also being designed as ‘integral’ units, where all key primary system components are...

Natural Hazards Review - Request for Proposals

The Natural Hazards Review project will develop a framework and best practice approach to characterise natural hazards and seek to improve methodologies where current approaches are inefficient. This is to improve energy system infrastructure design and the project is intended to share knowledge of natural hazards across sectors.The project will be completed in three stages. Phase one will focus on a gap analysis. Phase two will look at developing a series of improved methodologies from...

ETI: Innovation Learnings - Carbon Capture and Storage

M. Colechin
The ETI’s analysis of the UK energy system points to the central importance of CCS in enabling the UK to meet its carbon targets efficiently. CCS could save tens of billions of pounds (up to circa 1% of GDP by 2050) from the annual cost of meeting UK Climate Change targets, compared with alternative approaches to reducing emissions which do not deploy this capability.

The ETI has carried out techno-economic and project investment level modelling of...

Taking Stock of UK CO2 Storage

D. Gammer
Termination of the most recent Government CCS Commercialisation competition late in 2015 was a major setback for the decarbonisation of the fossil power and industrial sectors in the UK. Now the dust has settled, we review in this paper what we have learned about the CO2 storage aspects of CCS in particular, and other aspects of CCS that have changed over the last few years, since we first published our analysis of the UK’s CO2...

Hydrogen Turbines Follow On - Scenario 10 Results Pack - Cost-optimal pathways to decarbonising the GB power sector - Final Report

Optimal annual decarbonisation pathways to 2050 considering capacity and operational dispatch requirements, and current policy momentum effectsETI commissioned Baringa to undertake detailed analysis of what the cost optimal power sector capacity mix could look like around the 2030 point on the pathway to 2050, which allows for feasible operation (in line with GB’s reliability standard for a loss of load expectation of 3 hours per year) and which is consistent with a trajectory that enables...

Biomass to Power with CCS - One Page Summary

TESBiC: Techno-Economic Study of Biomass to power with CCS. Bioenergy production coupled with CCS could provide up to 10% of UK energy in the 2050s and deliver substantial net negative emissions. At the time of writing (2012) Bioenergy with CCS was thought to have the potential to remove 50 - 100 Mt of CO2 from the atmosphere each year by 2050. More recent analysis, published in the Bioenergy Insights papers, suggests that this figure is...
