"Characteristics and Advantages of the Advanced Small Pressurized Water Reactor"

Journal Article, Nuclear Power, volume 5

By Peipei Chen and Yun Zhou, Associate, Project on Managing the Atom

The Advanced Small Pressurized Water Reactor (ASPWR) can be used in remote power grids and replaces mid/small size fossil-fuel plants economically. Current ASPWR deeply adopts modular and integrated pressure vessel design—and a passive safety system—which effectively improves plant safety and economy. This paper performs the comparative study of safety and economy features in ASPWR and large PWRs. The authors suggest that China should start R&D programs in ASPWR.

"Is China Ready for Its Nuclear Expansion?"

Journal Article, Energy Policy, issue 2, volume 39

By Yun Zhou, Associate, Project on Managing the Atom, Christhian Rengifo, Peipei Chen and Jonathan Hinze

This paper aims to provide a comprehensive assessment of the Chinese nuclear energy program and policy, reviewing its past, present, likely future developments, as well as to consider potential challenges that deserve further attention. This paper will explore reasons that have caused the existing industry, describe China's nuclear bureaucracy and decision making process to understand how different stakeholders play a role in China's nuclear energy development. This study concludes that China's existing nuclear program and industry, in combination with its current stable economic and political environment, provides a sound foundation for the planned nuclear expansion. However, challenges which are crucial to the success of the nuclear expansion will need to be addressed.
