What Prevents Nuclear Energy Development in Europe?
Wednesday, 18 May 2022, 10 am to 1 pm
The conference will be held on-line
The current war in Ukraine is turning the energy systems debate primarily to how to tackle the realistic risk of Russian natural gas cut-off. The list of possible solutions includes accelerated development of renewables and energy consumption reduction schemes. Czech political representatives, in turn, have supported long-term replacement of fossil fuels with investment in nuclear reactors. What are the economic risks associated with new nuclear units? Can we substitute for Russian natural gas and phase out coal combustion without them? Which energy future will be cheaper?
The objective of the international conference NEC 2022 “What Prevents Nuclear Energy Development in Europe?” is to discuss these very issues in detail with international and Czech experts.
17 May 2022 – The conference will be broadcast live via the Czech News Agency website as well as the portal Hospodářské noviny, but without the ability to ask questions and only in the Czech language.
20 April 2022 – Register for the Conference today. Please confirm your attendance by 16 May at the latest. Admission is free of charge. Journalists, public authorities, deputies, senators, energy experts, environmental organisations and other persons interested in nuclear waste issues are invited.
