IIA Virtual Training will help countries develop a national position for the new nuclear power program

Establishing a national position on nuclear power is an important part of a new nuclear program. During this week’s first-ever IAEA training, organized by the Electric de France (EDF), 21 participants from 15 countries learned about economic and financial aspects to consider when developing such a national position. From countries that build nuclear power plants.

National position provides the basis for the development and implementation of a future nuclear power program. Explains why nuclear power is compatible with national issues such as long-term energy planning, self-sufficiency, and carbon emissions. He said countries need comprehensive and reliable information on nuclear energy, including cost, benefits, finances, and environmental issues, in order to make an informed decision on whether to start a nuclear program. Department of Nuclear Energy. ‚ÄúThese training courses are part of a strategic approach to building nuclear power infrastructure to increase awareness and understanding of Milston’s approach.

The course was part of the IAEA Technical Cooperation Project (INIT). INIT is an initiative designed to support countries to promote nuclear energy and make informed decisions on capacity building to develop the necessary capabilities for a safe, secure and sustainable nuclear power program. A.D. Founded in 2016, this initiative provides training through courses, scientific visits, workshops and partners.

The three-day training course includes IAEA and international experts, as well as the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD-NEA) and the European Institute for Nuclear Safety Training and Reinforcement (INI). Learn about nuclear energy and the importance of stakeholder engagement at the local, regional, and international levels, including how to modernize national energy policy. You also heard about the construction and financial components involved in implementing the nuclear power program.

“The main purpose of this training course is to enable participants to understand and analyze various aspects of the nuclear energy program,” said Anne Lazarus Suri, director of international relations at the French Alternative Energy and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). ). It aims to provide an overview of the key aspects that need to be integrated in the early stages to allow informed decisions and to successfully implement such a project.

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, the INIT project has been adapted to meet current challenges, particularly international travel restrictions. The INIT trainings, which begin this week, each cover a specific topic in an imaginary format, followed by an individual training course.

“We want to make sure that this community of future decision-makers continues to share knowledge on how to build a national nuclear power program and the best way to determine the criteria for decision-making on a nuclear power program,” said Vice President Vakis Ramani. For nuclear development by EDF. So we decided to create and organize three short online sessions in three days to give participants a brief overview of what to expect for the upcoming fitness course.

Nearly 30 countries, including Ethiopia, are currently considering nuclear energy.

Ashabir Tesfaye, Nuclear Engineer at the Ethiopian Ministry of Innovation, said, “It is very important for us to train personnel in our National Nuclear Technology Task Force, especially with a clear approach to implementing this nuclear energy program.” And technology. I look forward to the knowledge and skills we gain during next year in physical training.

Part of the training is planned for 2021. The course is funded by CEA and implemented through the IAEA Technical Cooperation Program.

Presentation of chapter stones

Published by the IAEA Nuclear Energy Series and Established in 2015 as a guideline, the IAEA Millennium approach provides countries with a conducive environment for successful nuclear power projects and helps them understand and prepare for related obligations and obligations. This outcome-oriented approach includes three levels (consider, prepare, build), three levels (decision, contract, commission) and 19 infrastructure issues to be adjusted at each level, such as nuclear security, nuclear security, protection, law and regulatory frameworks. , Radioactive Waste Management, Human Resource Development and Stakeholder Involvement.

Over the past decade, the Millennium approach has been a reference for member states to launch or expand their nuclear programs. The presentation and supporting documents of the chapter stones were widely used and the framework and vocabulary were widely accepted.
