What future for nuclear power?

Oct 7, 2021 | 5:00 PM CEST - 6:15 PM CEST

ECHO 6

Description

Nuclear energy is facing major technical and economic challenges at a time when its advantages in terms of CO2 emissions for achieving carbon neutrality in our economy by 2050 are increasingly being highlighted. At a time when nuclear power is receiving significant support under the stimulus plan, this round table will address the future of the industry, along its entire value chain: skills, optimisation of fuel supply and consumption, major refurbishment, development of new reactors (Small modular reactor (SMR) / Micro modular reactor (MMR), fast neutrons (generation IV)), storage, recovery and reuse of very low-level radioactive waste and metals, and dismantling of the fleet. These short- and medium-term challenges for the sector will be put into perspective with those of the longer term, such as the development of nuclear fusion.
