The Advanced CANDU Reactor (ACR®) is an evolutionary design based on traditional CANDU fuel-channel reactor, featuring on-line refuelling, light-water coolant, and heavy water moderator and reflector. The reactor design achieves reduced capital costs by significantly lowering heavy water inventory through reduced lattice pitch and light water coolant. The talk will overview the reactor design, computer codes for reactor physics analysis, and a comprehensive program for validation of capabilities and accuracy of computer codes.
When: Thursday, October 14, 2010 1:30 PM-3:00 PM (GMT-08:00) Pacific Time (US & Canada).
Where: Commission Auditorium, California Public Utilities Commission, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, California

A who's who of UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab energy and climate scientists with leading international experts
Can we emulate the ability of green plants to harness solar energy? Can we create intelligent materials, buildings, and even entire communities that generate their own energy? Can we put a price on greenhouse gases in order to reduce emissions? Can the technology used to produce an inexpensive anti-malaria drug also extract fuel from agricultural waste?
Hear world-renowned experts in solar energy, synthetic biology, climate science, urban design, and other critical areas discuss the best courses of action to achieve a sustainable energy future.
