Abstract: Global energy demand is expected to grow nearly 50 percent by 2040, with most of that from fossil fuels. Yet nuclear energy is still the only carbon-free power that can satisfy our electricity-hungry world at the scales that most towns and factories need. New advanced reactors, such as fast reactors, offer other advantages that can also address environmental, fuel availability, and used-fuel storage issues. But just what are these advanced reactors?
