Abstract

An interest in nuclear energy revival, after an about 20 years stop, is talking shape in ltaly according to the Government initiative to restructure the national electric energy mix currently heavily based on fossil and imported electricity both accounting for more than 85%. In order to that the governmental plan aims at building an electricity generation mix by 2030, 50 % based on fossil, 25% on nuclear and 25 % un renewables. The preliminary study here carried out refers to a scenario based on large and small-medium size PWR reactors like EPR and IRIS, whose deployment is expected in the time horizon 2020-2030. One basic assumption for the scenario analysis was the first NPP will come on line by 2020 with construction starting in 2014, and total electric capacity target corresponding to 25% of the national electricity demand is achieved by 2030.
