Innovative possibilities of using the methodology of the «economic cross» in predicting the prospects of a two-component nuclear power industry

Based on an innovative methodology for analyzing the intersection of the life cycles of nuclear energy resources and nuclear power units (the socalled «economic cross» methodology), the technological requirements of the nuclear energy industry of Russia and the world for the medium term are assessed, possible directions of economic modeling of the consequences of its development in the framework of technological Rosa-tom state corporation opportunities. The economic feasibility of introducing innovative technology of fast neutron reactors and the formation of a two-component nuclear energy with the closure of the nuclear fuel cycle (СNFC), in the context of the conceptual transformations taking place in the global energy sector in the medium term, is substantiated. A preliminary forecast has been made of the prospects for the innovative development of two-component nuclear energy with nuclear fuel cycle based on modeling intersections of production and resource sectoral technological cycles. Concrete examples of the application of the innovative methodology of the «economic cross» to solve the problem of identifying the economic prospects of strategic intersectoral cooperation in the framework of the closure of the nuclear fuel cycle at the regional level are developed
