The NEA established the High-level Group on the Security of Supply of Medical Radioisotopes (HLG-MR) in 2009. The HLG-MR is comprised of 20 experts who are representatives from the governments of Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, South Africa and the United States, as well as from the European Commission and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Members of the HLG-MR are nominated by governments. They include experts from government agencies and from research and industrial organisations with interests in medical radioisotopes. The principle objective of the HLG-MR ...

It defines itself as a forum of countries committed to democracy and the market economy, providing a setting to compare policy experiences, seeking answers to common problems, identifying good practices, and co-ordinating domestic and international policies of its members. The OECD originated in 1948 as the Organisation for European Economic Co-operation ( OEEC ), led by Robert Marjolin of France, to help administer the Marshall Plan for the reconstruction of Europe after World War II . Later, its membership was extended to non-European states. In 1961, it was reformed into the Organisation for ...

From Coal to Nuclear – A Look at the Numbers
The world became pre-occupied with economic recovery, but then we had a coal mining disaster and a massive oil spill, reminders that our energy problems have not gone away. The global recession caused energy use to fall in 2009 for the first time since 1981, but the International Energy Agency (IEA) projects energy demand to grow by 41% between 2007 and 2030 [1] unless major policy changes occur. Table 1. – Energy Projections, Current Policies Source: IEA * Million tons of oil equivalent (MTOE), is a standardizing measure for energy; one million tons of oil equivalent is the energy generated by burning 1,000,000 metric tons of ... market research, surveys and trends
IEA/OECD Report Concludes Nuclear Power Could Provide 24% of ...
Almost one-quarter of global electricity could be generated from nuclear power by 2050, making a major contribution to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Nuclear Energy Technology Roadmap, published by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA). Such an expansion will require nuclear generating capacity to more than triple over the next 40 years, a target the roadmap describes as ambitious but achievable. Nuclear generating capacity worldwide is presently 370 gigawatts electrical (GWe), providing 14% of global electricity. In the IEA scenario for a 50% cut in energy-related CO 2 market research, surveys and trends

Nuclear Energy Agency Country Profiles - Canada
There are currently 22 nuclear power reactors in Canada which are operated by public utilities and private companies in Ontario (20), Quebec (1) and New Brunswick (1). Of the 22 reactors installed, 16 reactors are currently in full commercial operation, and they generate around 13% of Canada's electricity, over 40% in Ontario. Moreover, nine CANDU reactors are currently in operation or under construction outside of Canada. In 2002, CANDU reactors in operation in Canada and abroad performed very well. Their performance averaged 85%, slightly higher than the lifetime average performance of 83%. Table 1 gives an overview of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Cost Overruns at Finland Reactor Hold Lessons - NYTimes.com
OLKILUOTO, Finland — As the Obama administration tries to steer America toward cleaner sources of energy, it would do well to consider the cautionary tale of this new-generation nuclear reactor site.

Nation to Miss Nuclear Reactor Goal After C. Java Residents Pull the Plug
The government won’t reach its target of completing a nuclear power plant by 2016 because of opposition from residents of the proposed location in Central Java, a senior official said. Because of the objections of the people of Jepara district on the Muria Peninsula, it was necessary to find another location for the reactor and more time for implementation would be needed, said Hudi Hastowo, head of the National Nuclear Energy Agency (Batan). “It will take two to three years to find another suitable location. So the execution of the plan will undergo a delay. We will not have a nuclear power plant by 2016,” Hudi said. Batan is ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
CER-Climate Change update: How MSE scored
The Maldives Stock Exchange (MSE) has become the first in the world to measure its carbon emissions and use carbon offsetting. It has teamed up with the UK-based CarbonNeutral Company in a bid to help the group of islands get one step closer to becoming a low-carbon economy. The MSE has measured the CO2 emissions that are produced by energy consumption, waste disposal and company owned or controlled vehicles. It has also tried to reduce the carbon emissions produced by business travel within the MSE, as well as staff commuting to and from work, and offset them according to the guidelines outlined by the CarbonNeutral Company. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Nuclear Power: Nuclear Power Plants, nuclear power plants, nuclear ...
ANSWER: Definitely you should keep the nuclear power plants in operation and if you can build more. Nuclear power is the most economical, safe and environmentally acceptable way of producing electricity. If you read articles in Wikipedia, NRC, DOE, IAEA, OECD Nuclear Energy Agency and other related sites you get much more up to date information and see interesting pictures and tables. No nation can shy away from nuclear energy. The more nuclear power plants we have the less coal plants we need and thus much less air pollution and climate change. ---------- FOLLOW-UP ---------- QUESTION: But there has to be something wrong with ...
