The European electricity market is in a flux. 2013, many European companies and countries struggle to achieve cost competitiveness, and create environments for healthy profitability and sound fundamentals for the states to ensure a good welfare. The electricity market is in many ways part of this. Thus, any discussion on market design must emanate from 2013, and from the (global) cost competitiveness of the electricity system discussed. Thus, the issue is not only how much burden the European customers can bear (affordability) but whether proposed solutions are long run viable. European electricity producers compete with the rest of the world on the manufacturing and energy intensive industry.
The upgrade of the ESS linear accelerator to produce the world’s most intense neutrino Super Beam – a challenge
The European Spallation Source in Lund is based on what will be the world’s most powerful linear proton accelerator. This accelerator will produce a 2 GeV proton beam of 5 MW to be sent to a spallation target to provide the world’s most intense production of pulsed neutrons to be used for basic and applied material research. The linac duty factor required for such operation is low (4 %) which will permit increasing the linac pulse frequency from 14 Hz to 28 Hz. The extra pulses will be sent to another target with the aim to produce an intensive neutrino Super Beam with the potential of providing unprecedented opportunities for fundamental neutrino-physics research.

Understanding of fast ion physics is important for the development and control of burning plasmas in future fusion devices such as ITER and DEMO. One of the challenges of burning plasmas is the confinement of fusion born alpha particles for a sufficiently long time for the transfer of their energy to the bulk fuel ions to occur. Fast ions can excite magneto-hydro-dynamic (MHD) instabilities causing fast ion redistribution and losses and thus degrading the plasma
confinement and lead to undesirable heat load on the vessel wall.
