Matrix Group Launches New Microsite for the Nuclear Power Plant Exporters' Principles of Conduct

October 24, 2011

Matrix Group, an award-winning web design and development agency in the Washington D.C. area, announces the launch of a new microsite for the Nuclear Power Plant Exporters' Principles of Conduct.

With more and more countries looking into renewable energy resources, nuclear energy remains at the top of the list. According to the Nuclear Energy Institute, nuclear power plants provide approximately 13 percent of the world's electricity.  The value of nuclear energy continues to grow with 65 nuclear plants under construction worldwide.

THE NEED

As nuclear energy continues to be a valuable source of energy globally, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace facilitated the world's major civilian nuclear power plant vendors from Canada, France, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United States. Vendors include GE Hitachi, Westinghouse Electric Company, Toshiba. The companies developed a set of voluntary standards to reinforce existing codes, standards and regulations in safety, security, environmental protection and spent fuel management, compensation in the unlikely event of nuclear-related damage, nonproliferation and ethics.

The team at Carnegie needed to create a home for the principles and provide information to the public and the media on the participants. Carnegie turned to Matrix Group to create a microsite.

THE MATRIX GROUP SOLUTION

With an understanding of the site's overall goals and audiences, Matrix Group designed and implemented a microsite in the popular content management system, WordPress. Now, visitors can:

  • Read the principles and learn the history behind the development of them.
  • Learn about the companies that have adopted the principles, read statements of support from international government officials, operators and experts.
