THE ROLE OF NUCLEAR IN THE GREEN ENERGY MIX

09:30-10:30 Congress Centre, Conference Hall B1
Meeting the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement will require a radical transformation of the current system of power generation in the world, as well as accelerated development of zero carbon energy. At present, the share of such green energy of the future amounts to just 30% of overall global generation. Nuclear power plants producing around 11% of global power, along with renewables, are making a significant contribution to green energy. What will the future green energy balance look like and what role will nuclear power play in its creation? What technologies and solutions will serve as the basis for nuclear power development? How can we ensure efficient implementation of nuclear generation projects?
