Analyzing Nuclear Power in Russia
The Russian energy strategy of 2003 sets policy priority to reduce the use of natural gas for electricity and to double the nuclear output by 2020. In 2006 the Federal Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) announced a target of nuclear providing 23% of electricity by 2020 and 25% by 2030.

Russia has made plans to increase the number of reactors in operation from thirty one to fifty nine, financed with the help of loans from the European Union. Old reactors will be maintained and upgraded, including RBMK units similar to the reactor in Chernobyl. China and Russia have agreed on cooperation in the construction of nuclear stations in October 2005.

The report – Analyzing Nuclear Power in Russia – by Aruvian's R'search, explores the importance of nuclear power in today’s world, with Section One being dedicated to Understanding the Basics of Nuclear Power. The report looks at the basics of the nuclear industry that is, how a plant works, analyzing and understanding the fuel cycle, the various components which are involved in the working of a nuclear power plant, and much more. Economics, issues and barriers, and other such factors are also explored in-depth in this report.

Aruvian’s offering includes a complete analysis of the Russian Nuclear Power Industry, including an analysis of the nuclear power stations in Russia, the major Russian players in nuclear power, and much more. Industry profile, industry developments, technological developments, non-proliferation issues, Uranium fuel cycle developments, and lots more information is included in this research report. This research offering from Aruvian is a comprehensive A to Z guide on the Russian nuclear power industry.
