New Nuclear Watch Institute (NNWI) Forum 2019
The New Nuclear Watch Institute believes Europe needs both nuclear and renewable energy to meet its challenging targets. Cuts of 90 per cent in greenhouse gas emissions cannot be achieved by 2050 without a significant contribution from nuclear. Global concern about climate change will intensify in the next few years.
The Forum will address these issues directly. It will recognize that cost is an obstacle to faster development of new nuclear plant and examine how modern technology and practice can help. It will explore the economic benefits of developing new capacity.
The Forum will be an opportunity to hear from and question industry experts and policy makers. It will promote the exchange of views and information about the future of the nuclear industry in Europe. Its purpose is to secure wider acceptance of the essential role of nuclear in Europe’s energy mix.
Topics to be covered:
- Is there a place for nuclear energy in Europe
- Making the case for nuclear in the energy mix
- Cutting the cost of new nuclear plants
- Economic benefits of nuclear
- A European Green New Deal
