Panel Discussion: The Future of Nuclear Power

Past Event

November 8, 2013

4:00 am - 6:00 am

The Center on Global Energy Policy invites you to attend a panel discussion on the future of nuclear power. 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.)? These and other issues will be discussed by our distinguished guests, who include:

Tom Blees, President, the Science Council for Global Initiatives
Jason Bordoff, Director, CGEP, Professor of Professional Practice in International Affairs, Columbia University
Dr. Yoon Chang, Senior Technical Advisor, Distinguished Fellow, Argonne National Laboratory
Joyce Connery, Director, Nuclear Energy Policy, National Security Staff, the White House
Ray Hunter, former Deputy Director of the Office of Nuclear Energy, Science and Technology, U.S. Department of Energy
Nobuo Tanaka, Distinguished Fellow, CGEP; former Executive Director of the International Energy Agency

This event is open to press. Registration is required.
The Center on Global Energy Policy is proud to have the Center on Japanese Business and Economy, Columbia Business School, as our outreach partner for this event
