    Thorium fueled Accelerator Driven Subcritical Reactors
    have been proposed as a more comprehensive alternative
    to conventional nuclear reactors for both energy production
    and for burning radioactive waste. Several new classes
    have been added by the authors to the GEANT4 simulation
    code, an extension which allows the state-of-the-art
    code to be used for the first time for nuclear reactor criticality
    calculations. In this paper we investigate the impact
    of the subcriticality and injected proton beam energy on
    the ADSR performance for novel ADSR configurations involving
    multiple accelerator drivers and associated neutron
    spallation targets within the reactor core.
