The Future of Nuclear Power

Summary Report and Video:

CJEB was an outreach partner for an event on November 8, “The Future of Nuclear Power,” which was organized by the Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) as part of a week featuring its Fellow, Nobuo Tanaka, at Columbia University.  A summary of events surrounding this special week is now available on CGEP’s website. A video of this event is also available here.


Synopsis:
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 (radioactive waste, risk of disaster, water-intensity, etc.)?
