  • Currently, 21 commercial nuclear power reactor units are under operation in the country. Of 21, 18 are Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors (PHWRs), two are Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs) and one is VVER-type Pressurised Water Reactor (PWR) belonging to the Light Water Reactor (LWR) category.
  • With depleting coal reserves and draining gas and oil wells, energy security is a common concern of the international community. Even more, consistently soaring levels of Carbon dioxide and related toxicity in the environment and palpable climate changes have made nuclear power emerge as a formidable alternative sources of energy in order to ensure an energy secured future for the posterity.
  • Achieving another feat in the field of nuclear energy, 1000 MWe second reactor of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP) commenced power generation at commercial level at 11 am on March 31, 2017.
  • Despite all the misgivings about nuclear, radioactivity and radiations and their link to ‘rising number’ of ailments like cancer, particularly, in the vicinity of nuclear plants or test sites, countries across the globe are going firm with their nuclear power programmes for a sustainable option to meet increasing energy requirements without meddling much with climate. As per the United Nations scientists the world needs to triple the energy it gets from renewables, nuclear reactors and power plants that use emissions-capture technology to avoid dangerous levels of global warming and climate change.
  • The world is not doing enough to reduce man-made atmospheric carbon dioxide emissions. At the current speed of CO2 reduction, a century may be required to bring down the CO2 levels by one-third of the present level. That is not enough, if we care about the health of the planet. So, there is a need to speed up the adoption of clean energy sources like nuclear power in order to reduce the impact of global warming to as low as possible.
  • “If I only knew then what I know now!” I was having a conversation with a friend who had spent years working full time while putting himself through college. His business degree had landed him a good job in the corporate support organization of a large electric utility. He was happy to have it and his smarts, maturity, and work ethic had served him well.
  • April 7 is World Health Day, established by the United Nations World Health Organization to raise awareness on key global health issues, by uniting governments, world leaders, as well as grass­roots organizations in a focused effort to create a healthier world. The initiative for WHD 2015 is “Food Safety – From Farm to Plate.” This day focuses on demonstrating the importance of food safety along the whole length of the food chain in a globalised world, from production and transport to preparation and consumption.
  • Sustainability is not just a buzz word. It is the need of the hour. To live in a sustainable world, we need sustainable energy use. That's where climate neutrality comes into picture. Adopting climate neutral policies means that we should use such processes that have zero carbon footprint and do not increase any burden on…
  • The United States of America is hosting ‘Nuclear Security Summit 2016’ in Washington, D.C., on March 31 and April 1, 2016. Experts from all across the globe will be participating in this bi-annual event. The prime focus of the summit is the measures in place and enhanced strategies for effective control of nuclear materials from.
  • President of France, Mr. François Hollande visited India in the last week of January 2016. During the visit, EDF signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL) for setting up six EPR nuclear power reactors at Jaitapur site in Maharashtra. The MoU comes in the wake of French major
  • The 1000-MW nuclear power reactor unit-1 of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant has been restarted after a planned shutdown. The first reactor unit of Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant has attained criticality (which, in simple terms, means start of controlled fission chain reaction) on January 21, 2016 after the completion of planned refueling shutdown and maintenance activities.
