Nuclear Power, Energy, Iran
In the past two years, Iran\'s electricity consumption has been increased with an average of 7% over the years. So, as for the Iran’s development programs, it is predicted that this trend continues to rise. On the other hand, despite the widespread development of resources, climatic conditions and restrictions in hydro-electric has caused to decrease the share of electricity generation from dams and water resources within the past 40 years more than 25% to less than 4% and the increasing of country\'s electricity production dependency to power plant steam and gas or compound cycle. also coal resources is limited in our country and cannot be used to electric power generation, thus production of electricity in power plants nationwide compared to global average depends on the hydrocarbon fuel. Primary hydrocarbon energy conversion process to electricity is relatively low and negative environmental impacts, so It seems, turning to nuclear power generation, an inevitable and mentioned plans for country\'s future power supply, and stop this process will damage the country\'s economic development.
