Talk @ Tokyo : the future of Nuclear Energy & Safety

Here is just a brief post to share the English version of the talk I gave in Tokyo past September on Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Safety.

The presentation aimed at answering the following questions:

  • Why Japan needs Nuclear Energy ?
  • Why Nuclear Energy needs a new generation of reactors ? (so called Fast Breeder Reactors)
  • What are FBR all about ?
  • What are the basic principles of Nuclear Safety, and how were they challenged during the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Fukushima 1 NPP accident?
  • How “built-in safety” will improve it in the future ?
