UNCLEAR to NUCLEAR
The Union Cabinet on May 17, 2017 gave its approval for construction of 10 nuclear units of the new indigenously developed 700 MWe (mega watt electric) pressurised heavy water reactors (PHWRs) as part of its clean energy thrust.

We are qualified to supply nuclear grade equipment globally
Apart from the ongoing programmes such as RAPP and Kaiga, NPCIL is now talking about setting up 10 reactors simultaneously.

India´s ´Power for All´ initiative and focus on reducing carbon footprint have put pressure on the need for safe, green energy that can be produced on a large and sustainable scale; and it is here where nuclear power races ahead of its competitors.

The 2015 edition of BP´s Energy Outlook projected India´s energy production rising by 117 per cent to 2035, while consumption grows by 128 per cent. The country´s energy mix is projected to evolve very slowly over the next 22 years with fossil fuels accounting for 87 per cent of demand in 2035, compared with a global average of 81 per cent (down from 92 per cent now).

Need to study which components fill technical and investment gap
Today the energy needs of the country are majorly met by burning fossil fuel. More than ever, there is a need of capacity building by means that can provide long term clean, green, cheap source of power.

Nuclear pacts improve Generation Potential
In terms of clarity of vision and rationale, our 3 stage nuclear energy programme is unparalleled. Yet, for various reasons, the Indian nuclear power sector has not achieved its true potential. For decades, we had to develop indigenous technology, prove it, mature it and then scale it from 220 MW to 550-700 MW in the recent years. Later, shortage of Nuclear fuel put limitations to the rate and scale we could have grown.

Resolving Indias Nuclear Liability Impasse
Since its enactment in September 2010, India´s Civil Liability for Nuclear Damage Act (CLNDA) has been a subject of intense debate and controversy.1 Concerns over suppliers´ liability stipulated in the Act have supposedly deterred both international and domestic suppliers from entering into contracts to supply reactors
