Content: The global need of electricity continuously increases due to population and economic growth. On the other hand, the international community has raised the concern of global warming from the release of green-house gas to the atmosphere. Nuclear power, complemented with hydro and renewable energy (such as solar and wind), has been considered the clean option for electricity generation. The Generation-IV International Forum (GIF) has been established for international community to develop the next generation nuclear systems. It identifies key technology goals for these systems: enhanced economic, safety and reliability, sustainability, proliferation resistance and physical protection. The Super-Critical Watercooled Reactor (SCWR) is one of six selected systems for joint development. A summary of the global electricity demand, SCWR concepts currently being developed within the international community and how the SCWRs meeting GIF technology goals is presented.
