Purpose of the Commission

Feasibility of nuclear power plants siting underground is studied.

On the basis of the result of the feasibility study, the design and construction methodologies of underground nuclear power plants are proposed.

The final outcome of the Commission on UNPP is to publish a guideline for the design and construction methodologies of underground nuclear power plants. The guideline should give an international standard for underground nuclear power plants, which will be published hopefully as one of the IAEA publications.

Products of the Commission

We have already produced the two Commission reports, one is Commission report (2015) consisting of 130 pages, and the other is Commission report (2017) consisting of 159 pages. The final outcome of the Commission will be Commission report (2023), and a guideline for the design and construction methodologies of underground nuclear power plants.
