The objectives of this expert group are:
These issues are critical to implementing a sustainable nuclear energy infrastructure and this expert group will:
The expert group liaises closely with other study groups (e.g. EC, IAEA, etc.) and other activities being carried out under NEA auspices, for example, by NSC, the Radioactive Waste Management Committee (RWMC) and the Committee for Technical and Economic Studies on Nuclear Energy Development and the Fuel Cycle (NDC). in particular, it provides expertise when necessary on issues related to the integration of nuclear power in an energy mix.
