Ms. Carol Kessler appointed Deputy Director-General of the Nuclear Energy Agency

Ms. Carol E. Kessler is the new Deputy Director-General of the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), succeeding Mr. Samuel Thompson who has retired. Ms. Kessler took up her duties in the NEA on 1 August. Ms. Kessler has extensive experience in nuclear energy co-operation and in nuclear non-proliferation and defence issues, with first-hand knowledge of international organisations. More information is available at /general/press/2001/2001-06.html.


Facts and figures

A new web page providing basic nuclear energy facts and figures is now available. The page provides figures on the number of nuclear units connected to the grid in OECD Member countries, nuclear electricity generation and the percentage of the total electricity supply provided by nuclear power. The statistics are drawn from Nuclear Energy Data. The page is available at /general/facts.html .


Legal affairs

The first session of the International School of Nuclear Law, recently established within the University of Montpellier 1 in co-operation with the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency, opened in Montpellier on 27 August. Over 50 students from 34 countries will be attending lectures and practical seminars taught by world-renowned specialists in the field of nuclear law over a two-week period. More information is available at /general/press/2001/2001-05.html.


Nuclear safety

The proceedings of the CSNI Workshop on Operator Training for Severe Accidents and Instrumentation Capabilities under Severe Accident Conditions [NEA/CSNI/R(2001)7] are now available on request from Jacques Royen (jacques.royen@oecd.org).
