WEBINAR
High-tech energy “ecosystems” for sustainable development

Thursday 28 October 2021

This webinar explored how high-tech solutions can help reduce the carbon load of electricity systems and more efficiently achieve the UN SDGs. A particular focus was placed on the creation of net zero clusters comprising various low-carbon energy sources and sustainable solutions, from nuclear power plants to renewables to energy storage systems.

Speakers included:

  • Michel Bérthelemy, Nuclear Energy Analyst, OECD Nuclear Energy Agency

  • Shannon Bragg-Sitton, Integrated Energy Systems Lead, Nuclear Sciences and Technology, Idaho National Laboratory

  • Sophie Macfarlane-Smith, ‎Head of Customer Business, Rolls-Royce SMR

  • Egor Simonov, Regional Vice President, Director of Rosatom Southeast Asia

REPORT LAUNCH WEBINAR
The Energy Security Value of Nuclear Power

Wednesday 28 July 2021

14:00 - 15:30 BST

Ensuring a ready supply of electricity at an affordable price is vital to the functioning of modern societies and its importance is only set to grow as sectors, including transport and heat, are increasingly electrified. Moreover, safeguarding electricity security will be a prerequisite to meeting the two great energy challenges that we currently face, the transition to decarbonisation and delivering energy access for all. This report analyses the likely threats to electricity security that may arise in the coming years and compares how different sources of electricity contribute towards it.

Harnessing the renewed global support for nuclear to help achieve net zero

Thursday 17 June 2021

14:00 - 15:30 BST

The recent report of the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre is the most positive statement about nuclear to emerge from any EU body for many years. Its resounding endorsement of nuclear’s environmental benefits and outstanding safety record will help nuclear take its rightful place alongside other low carbon energy technologies as a key part of the global response to climate change. Extending the life of existing nuclear plants will accelerate progress towards net zero in this decade while increased investment in new capacity, including advanced and small modular reactors, will drive down both costs and carbon emissions in the 2030s.

2021 - A New Dawn for Nuclear Energy?

Tuesday 23 February 2021

14:00 - 15:30 GMT

The start of 2021 sees a new American president ready to address the threat of climate change by prioritising low carbon energy, a British Government White Paper backing the construction of a new nuclear plant and a central European EU member state mulling investment in nuclear power. Do these straws in the wind herald a new dawn? Or will they raise hopes which will once again be dashed?

The synergy of the hydrogen economy and nuclear energy

Thursday 17 December 2020

14:00 - 15:30 GMT

There has never been a greater focus on the development of a clean hydrogen market. The focus of policy to date has been directed towards increasing production using electricity generated by renewables, ignoring the potential role of other low-carbon power sources, notably nuclear power. New NNWI report surveys the potential of hydrogen as a decarbonising agent as well as the state of present-day policy and makes clear the valuable role that nuclear-produced hydrogen can play in hastening the development of a widespread hydrogen deployment.
