About

The CGLN are delighted to be partnering with Cleary Gottlieb, in advance of the World Nuclear Symposium 2022, to bring together a range of stakeholders to discuss differing scientific, business and wider societal issues pertaining to nuclear technology and the role it can play to tackle the climate crisis.


The goal of the conference is to explore how the scientific, business and finance, and stakeholder communities can work together to speed up innovation and the scaling up of new nuclear technology.


The world is looking for new technologies to generate energy for a rapidly growing population while keeping climate change under control, and indeed reverse some of the damage done. Renewables and new nuclear should both be a core component of this strategy, but we need a concerted effort to bring these technologies to market within the short time frame that is left to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Agenda

Session 1 – scientific perspectives

This session will focus on explaining different forms of nuclear technologies and the benefits/challenges that flow from them, in lay person’s terms.


Session 2- business perspectives

This session will focus on how we can put the technologies into practice. What do the technology owners and customers need and want to get this technology to market more quickly, safely, and efficiently.


Session 3 – environmental and security concerns

This session will focus on wider factors, such as policy implementation and environmental and energy concerns derived from nuclear technologies.
