New York, December 08, 2010 — The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, December 6, 2010 that a “framework agreement” has been signed between French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. The agreement will allow French state–owned Areva, to sell nuclear reactors to India’ Maharashtra state complete with nuclear fuel for 25 years.
Manufacturers of nuclear reactor components, such as Areva, are entering a pivotal period as the new landscape of global nuclear energy production takes shape. Nations like India who are committed to constructing next-generation nuclear facilities will rely on these manufacturers to provide high quality products that foster a safe, secure, and enduring environment for energy production.
“India’s shortage of fossil fuels is driving its assertive investment in nuclear technology. Their government has given approval for construction of new nuclear reactors using indigenous technology,” says Shelley Carr, publisher of SBI Energy, a market research firm.
India’s dedication to developing nuclear electricity as a cleaner alternative to coal–fired power has nations–the United States, for example–fiercely competing for a piece of its lucrative opportunity. According to Nuclear Energy Technologies Worldwide: Components and Manufacturing, a study by SBI Energy, India has six reactors currently in manufacturing and ten additional units planned through the next decade. Of this ten, six will be supplied from France as part of the newly signed agreement. Local media reports the value of the first two French reactors is estimated at $9.4 billion. SBI Energy’s study forecasts the total nuclear energy installed capacity in India will accelerate its domestic production of reactors and grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13% through 2013 to reach 39.4 MWh.
SBI Energy’s Nuclear Energy Technologies Worldwide: Components and Manufacturing report covers several components of the nuclear energy technology industry around the world including the overall market value of nuclear energy technology manufacturing. The report examines shipments, imports and exports, as well as the economic and market trends driving the nuclear technology industry.

Market Insights: A Selection From The Report
The function of a data center is to house the infrastructure needed to store and serve vast amounts of data. These facilities house servers, storage devices, network equipment, power supplies, cooling equipment and other infrastructure. An estimated 33 million servers were in use within data centers globally in 2005. This number is expected to grow to more than 122 million by 2020.
Data centers consumed 130 billion kilowatt hours of electricity in 2005, or 0.7% of the world’s electricity generation that year. About half of the electricity consumed within a data center is used to power servers and storage devices, while approximately 45% of the electricity used by the data center is for cooling systems and the balance for operation of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Assuming no energy reduction initiatives, by 2010 electric consumption of data centers will have grown to 210 billion kilowatt hours and to 355 billion kilowatt hours by 2015. Data centers would then account for over 1.5% of projected total global electricity generation in 2015.
The forecasted energy consumption and associated carbon emissions shown in Figure 3-3 above assume no energy reduction initiatives. However, there are several technological developments and trends underway which will lead to reduced energy use within data centers. These include…
