REPORT: NUCLEAR POWER VALUE CHAIN IN POLAND

The aim of the report, entitled Nuclear Power Value Chain in Poland, is to define the key success factors for the development of nuclear power in Poland, as well as to assess the capacity and define the conditions to be met by domestic companies to optimally participate in the process (maximising the share of local content).

The findings of the report will allow for assessment of several nuclear power development scenarios, taking into account the changes taking place in the mix of different fuels and energy sources and the role of small and large nuclear.

The recommendations presented will allow the planning of market and institutional support instruments for the development of this part of the energy sector in Poland.

 

CONTENT OF THE REPORT:

I. NUCLEAR POWER VALUE CHAIN – STUDY CONCEPT.
II. GLOBAL NUCLEAR POWER MARKET, PLANS AND DIRECTIONS OF ITS DEVELOPMENT:

  • nuclear power industry in the world;
  • characteristics of reactors in operation;
  • new nuclear reactors – plans and directions of nuclear power development;
  • small modular reactors (SMRs);
  • position of nuclear power in EU climate policy;
  • prospects for nuclear power development in Poland in the context of EU climate
    policy.

III. TECHNOLOGICAL DETERMINANTS OF NUCLEAR POWER DEVELOPMENT:

  • types of nuclear power plants and reactors;
  • characteristics of selected nuclear reactor designs;
  • global nuclear power technology market;
  • specific features of the market;market of technology suppliers.

 IV. NUCLEAR FUEL:

  • global nuclear fuel market;
  • nuclear fuel chain;
  • uranium resources and markets;
  • uranium resources in Poland and Central and Eastern Europe;
  • uranium mining and conversion;
  • uranium enrichment and nuclear fuel production;
  • reuse of nuclear fuel.

V. CRITICAL ASPECTS RELATED TO SAFETY OF STORAGE AND
       RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT
 VI. POTENTIAL FINANCING MODELS FOR THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY
VII. POTENTIAL OF POLISH ENTERPRISES AND INSTITUTIONS WITH
         KNOWLEDGE AND ADVANTAGES TO BUILD NUCLEAR POWER IN POLAND:

  • national R&D potential in the area of nuclear energy – results of research of scientific
    and research units
  • scientific and research units;
  • national potential of enterprises – results of research of enterprises;
  • local content – inclusion of domestic enterprises in the process of building a nuclear power industry
  • nuclear power generation – results of surveys of technology suppliers;
  • development scenarios, potential and challenges – large and small nuclear reactors.

The report was prepared by the Faculty of Management at the University of Warsaw in
cooperation with the Institute of Power Engineering and the Energy Club.
