Symposium for Enabling Advanced Reactors for the Market
March 8-9, 2017
Being prepared for the future means anticipating and adjusting to the ever-changing factors that shape our society. A resilient, affordable, and clean energy infrastructure is at the heart of our quality of life and a crucial factor for broad economic competitiveness and employment. Leading us into this future are companies, consumers, and organizations that supply and use energy in novel and purposeful ways.
Advanced nuclear reactors are being developed to meet these future energy needs, including new markets, uses, and applications. Developers, energy producers, industrial users, the government, and other organizations each stand to gain from the success of advanced reactors with the assurance of sustainable and secure energy. However, there are several gaps and hurdles to overcome before realizing this future.
The Department of Energy's Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) Initiative, the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI), and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) are hosting a symposium, "Enabling Advanced Reactors for the Market," to bring together technology developers, energy users, government representatives, and others in a dialogue about the future energy market and the role of advanced nuclear technologies. The symposium will identify opportunities and challenges associated with deployment of advanced reactor technologies for future energy markets. Information on the regulatory environment and incentives used to support deployment of advanced reactors will also be discussed.
Engaging in this conversation will provide participants with insights and knowledge on:
