Abstract

Generation IV nuclear power plants are almost ready for primetime, but there are several things that need to happen first. Test reactors need to be built to test mechanical, fuel, and safety features, the public needs to decide whether to support building of new reactors, and nuclear policy needs to stabilize for the length of time required to really invest in nuclear power.
