Press Release: How to inspect equipment with a micro margin of error 25 times thinner an A4 page?

​To manufacture the various ITER components, engineers around the world need to think out of the box. Quite often they may have to develop tooling from scratch because it may not be readily available in the market to test components during fabrication. ITER is not only creating a direct demand for industry and laboratories to put all their talent to producing its components. It is also pushing those involved to go beyond the state of art and to transfer their know-how to new applications.

Press Release: Primary energy consumption by fuel in Europe

The EU’s primary energy consumption in 2017 was 9 % lower than in 2005, a trend which will continue in 2018 based on EEA’s preliminary estimates. The share of all non-renewable fuels in EU primary energy consumption has decreased between 2005 and 2017, while the share of renewable fuels has significantly increased over the same period. Still, the EU’s primary energy consumption rose above the indicative trajectory set by the EEA to monitor progress towards the 2020 energy efficiency targets, a trend which is expected to continue also in 2018. Therefore, achieving the 2020 targets is increasingly uncertain.

Event: The Geopolitics of Nuclear Energy (Brussels, 6 February 2020)

For decades the global nuclear energy industry was a highly diverse and vibrant market. Today the situation has changed with the global nuclear energy market becoming increasingly dominated by the state-owned companies of Russia and China. Both countries are continuing to step up efforts to strengthen their position in the global markets, especially in critical regions such as the Middle East and South Asia. Nearly two-thirds of the new reactors under construction worldwide are using designs from China and Russia. This development has heightened concerns about a weakening of nuclear governance standards, as well as potential political, economic and international security implications for Europe, its neighbours and partners.
