The Future of Nuclear Power
Friday, Nov 8, 2013
This event will focus on important questions including: how can the lessons from the Fukushima disaster be used to contribute to convincingly safer construction and operation of nuclear reactors? Can new technology – such as Integral Fast Reactors or Small Module Reactors – help restore public confidence and improve the commercial viability of nuclear power? What pathways exist for global collaboration on high-level waste management technology? In the evolving energy and climate landscape, how should society think about nuclear power as a zero-carbon fuel versus its other social externalities?
