Analysis of Water-Energy Issues for Nuclear Power with Industry Perspective, INL/RPT-23-73058271590This report includes analysis of water-related topics that affect the continued operation of the existing U.S. commercial nuclear fleet including (1) An evaluation of water consumption and withdrawal reporting methods noting inconsistencies between modeling and reporting approaches; influence of plant-level cooling water system type and capacity; and impact of local conditions including plant age, system performance amongst other factors. (2) A discussion on water supply-related issues impacting power generation including the lack of water available for cooling, higher-than-anticipated water intake temperatures, and high water-discharge temperature; acknowledging that despite the variations in magnitude, frequency, and duration of extreme weather events, response has been effective due in part to safety requirements that avoid environmental damage.12/8/2023 8:07:06 PMINL/RPT-23-75383 Revision 0 Light Water Reactor Sustainability Program Analysis of Water-Energy Issues for Nuclear Power with Industry Perspective December 2023 U.S. Department 50https://lwrs.inl.gov/Systems Analysis and Emerging Issues/Forms/AllItems.aspxpdfFalsepdf2023-12-08T07:00:00Z
