So who/what would you send to this envirotech summit? What corporations, technologies, dignataries, public figures would rock up? What would they do? Are there any scandals or beef they have with other people/companies that may up the drama?

Also, is there anyone from your nations who would provide lectures or talks during the summit? Any announcements you would want to make or any companies would want to make? Any markets you want to expand into - or new things you want to spruik?

Despite not being mentioned, which is regrettable but not surprising, Laeden will send two emissaries to this envirotech summit. The first will be Mme. Virginia Thiffault, the leader of the Parti Vert (Laeden's Green Party), and the second will be Louis Philippe Cadieux, president of L-AGRO, a large Laedenian agro company that invests heavily in technological solutions to the production of foodstuff.

I guess LPC wouldn't have beef with anyone. On the other hand, if anyone attending has problems with the use of pesticides, fertilizers and with genetically modified crops, they wouldn't get along so well. Virginia is more idealistic and I hardly think she'd get into trouble. Both would be interested in making speeches. LPC would like to talk about the newest green technologies that are revolutionizing the food market, and Virginia would talk about whataver crap those eco-nuts think, I'll work on her speech later.

Thromsa will send the Minister for Agriculture and Forestry, Alfred Whitehouse (M); the Minister for Environment, Mathilde Sergeant (F); and the Secretary of State for Sustainability, Suzanne West (F).

Regarding corporations.
Energreen (49% public stake)'s CEO, April Barrett (F), who'd talk about the role of technology in efficient energy production. Energreen being the major energy provider in the island of York, producing energy from wind, dams, biomass and nuclear. Energreen would certainly be open to invest in other developing energy markets.

Agrobyo(100% private)'s Director for Production, ArsŤne Guillaume, regarding the role of new technology in biological agriculture. Agrobyo would also be open to expand to other markets, despite having a (much) lesser degree of capital compared to Energreen.

envirotech summit news post is up to date (not uploaded or published or canon yet) so thank you all for your contributions... i'll probably be waiting a few days for any further contributions and then i'll likely post

we at 2557 words at the moment - man you all have made it such a good post... i don't think we've had something like what i've got sitting in this doc in TWI for a very long time so i'm excited to see what'll come from it!

On monday, I'll hopefully post about the outcome of the Kirsdoff protocol vote, which you can include if you want. I'm currently involved with the Baptism of Fire Tournament, which is taking up most of my time. If I get knocked out at the group stage though, then I won't have to worry about it.

The Solaryi government would probably send their Minister for Environment and a couple of staff from it to check out all of the presentations.

Visegrad Hydro, the company involved in the hydropower for the majority of Solaryia would probably send a representative to check out other developments in the Isles regarding hydroelectric power, particularly if there's any other representatives from Raedlon.

KJDS ( Krajowen Jernbanedirektorja Solaryi) (National Solaryi Rail Directorate) would also probably send a group of representatives to set up a stand, as well as a presentation about eco-friendly high speed rail currently implemented in Solaryia, as well as plans to cooperate with other rail agencies for a standardized Pan-Raelosi high speed rail network. They could also have separate smaller presentations regarding the implementations and feasibility of maglev trains and modern monorail systems in cities.

A representative from the aeronautics and space exploration corporation Starbound (Solaryi translation pending), Arkaj Orvik will also attend with Solaryi KosmŪbyra and SRKS (Solaryi Space Defense Force). He'll most likely give presentations regarding the technological improvements regarding aerospace technology and potential environmental uses. In addition, he would give a presentation regarding space elevators, their potential costs and benefits, as well as suitable locations across the Isles for construction in the distant future. You can't stop me /j

Iren SaskŪ, the current elected leader of the TWI climate response council will also attend, and would most likely give a talk regarding the current state and goals of the TWICRC as well. Espen Kouri, the Solaryi representative to the organization, would also likely attend.

Nuclear power, you say?
Altera would like to get on that.





Nuclear Energy Sector
Information of the History, Production and Use of Alteran Nuclear Energy

In response to the 1973 regional oil crisis, Altera and its Commonwealth began to look for alternative
and more secure sources of energy. With similar price instability projected for oil and gas supplies, the decision was made for
the nation to invest heavily in nuclear energy. As a consequence, Altera has become a regional power in research, manufacture
and production of nuclear sourced energy; despite being reasonably late to adopt nuclear energy.

Nuclear Energy; Who's in Charge?

    In the Alteran Republics and, with certain limitations, the former Alteran Commonwealth, there are two agencies that oversee the nuclear energy sector: the Alteran Nuclear Energy Authority (A.N.E.A.) and the Alteran Nuclear Energy Consortium (A.N.E.C.).

    Each of these agencies have different roles, authoritative positions and responsibilities for nuclear energy within the Alteran Republics:

  • The Alteran Nuclear Energy Authority (A.N.E.A.) is responsible for the planning, administration and regulation of nuclear energy. A.N.E.A. are funded, administrated and organised by the Reiltys Council and the Rheynn for Energy and Resources

  • The Alteran Nuclear Energy Consortium (A.N.E.C.) is a non-governmental body that is responsible for the design, maintenance and construction for nuclear sites. A.N.E.C. members consist of companies, independent watchdogs and other N.G.O.s

    Pressurized water reactors are the most common reactor in use today, according to the Alteran Atomic Energy Consortium. The Evolutionary Power Reactor was determined to be the 'Next Generation' of Pressurized Water Reactors, and are in fact the 3rd Generation of such reactors.

    Pressurized reactors, likes most reactors across the region, contain enriched uranium fuel sources that are used to heat highly pressurized water that generates steam; which uses this steam is used to turn a turbine that generates electricity collected and used in the power grid.

    Pressurized water reactors also use water as a cooling device. Secondary cooling measures to prevent overheating (meltdown) include adding boron to the system.

    Whilst popular at the time, the first generation EPRs were found to be expensive to use and maintain - when compared to more modern systems. Altera operates several of these plants, though they are predominately in the process of decommissioning or not having a life-extension scheme.

    Pressurized water reactors also use water as a cooling device. Secondary cooling measures to prevent overheating (meltdown) include adding boron to the system.

    Second generation EPRs were designed to be far more efficient - both economically and energy - when compared to the previous generation. Altera operates several of these plants, which are expected to be in service into the 2030s.

    The Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) is a type of nuclear reactor designed and operated in the Alteran Republics. These are the second generation of Alteran gas-cooled reactors, using graphite as the neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as coolant.

    Since their introduction, they have been the backbone of the AR's nuclear power generation fleet since the 1980s, and have sold and constructed around the region.

    The first generation AGR was developed primarily with the requirement to run on natural uranium, which required a coolant with a low neutron cross section, in this case carbon dioxide, and an efficient neutron moderator, graphite. This first design ran relatively cool gas temperatures compared to other power-producing designs, which resulted in less efficient steam conditions.

    Second generation AGR designs retained the graphite moderator and carbon dioxide coolant but increased the cooling gas operating temperature in order to improve steam conditions. These were made identical to those of a coal fired plant, allowing the same design of turbines and generation equipment to be used.

    The various AGR stations produce outputs in the range 450 MWe to 800 MWe though some run at lower than design output due to operational restrictions.

    Small modular reactors (SMRs) are nuclear fission reactors that are smaller than conventional nuclear reactors and typically have an electrical power output of less than 300 MWe or a thermal power output of less than 1000 MWth.

    They are designed to be manufactured at a plant and transported to a site to be installed. Modular reactors will reduce on-site construction and increase containment efficiency and are claimed to enhance safety.

    The greater safety should come via the use of passive safety features that operate without human intervention, a concept already implemented in some conventional nuclear reactor types. SMRs also reduce staffing versus conventional nuclear reactors.

    SMRs are claimed to cross financial and safety barriers that inhibit the construction of conventional reactors.

    The term SMR refers to the size, capacity and modular construction only, not to the reactor type and the nuclear process which is applied. Designs range from scaled down versions of existing designs to generation IV designs. Both thermal-neutron reactors and fast-neutron reactors have been proposed, along with molten salt and gas cooled reactor models.

    The Small Modular Reactor (SMR) programme is hailed as the future of Alteran Nuclear Energy, being spearheaded by a combined investment of technology from both the governments Nuclear Energy Consortium and Rowlands.

    The project, being led by Rowlands, is planning on decentralising nuclear infrastructure, by creating sites that will have a smaller financial, logistical and environmental footprint than compared to larger sites.
