      Nuclear power plants are among the safest and most secure facilities in the world. But accidents can happen, adversely affecting people and the environment. To minimize the likelihood of an accident, the IAEA assists Member States in applying international safety standards to strengthen nuclear power plant safety. nuclear power generation, which is based on small modular reactors, and a brief description of the theoretical reactors that are expected to be built in the future. Section four discusses the costs of building a nuclear power plant and the economic competitiveness of nuclear power compared with other sources of Size: 1MB.
