World energy needs have evolved over recent years which has driven countries to want energy independence by ever increasingly low carbon electricity.
Therefore, a new nuclear renaissance is emerging as a source of low carbon base load in the energy mix. With the changes in country needs and evolution of nuclear technology, safety remains paramount to an ever changing industry.
