The European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative (ESNII) focuses on industrial initiatives aiming to demonstrate Generation IV technologies with closed fuel cycles, to exploit the full potential of nuclear energy ensuring best use of uranium resources and waste minimization.


ESNII has a two-level governance:

  • The Coordination Board, which is a restricted executive body representating the four ESNII technologies (sodium-cooled, lead-cooled, lead-bismuth, gas-cooled) taking decisions on the ESNII Strategy, on labels to be provided, etc.
  • The Task Force brings together technology developers, utilities, engineering companies and research institutions, and represents all members.
