Following the success of our World Nuclear Power Briefing 2012 in Warsaw, the 2nd European Nuclear Power
Briefing 2013 will take place in Budapest from 22 – 25th September 2013.
Hungary has 4 nuclear reactors generating more than one-third of its electricity and there is overwhelming support to build at least another 2 nuclear power reactors. IAEA’s report of September 2012 indicate that globally, governments from 29 countries are considering a nuclear power programme to meet identified energy needs with a strong indication to proceed – out of tChaired by Lady Barbara Judge and hosted by the Hungarian Government, the 2nd European Nuclear Power Briefing 2013 through its panel of industry experts from government, electricity generating authorities, oil companies, technology providers, consultants, developers and investors, aims to bring you an intensive agenda that will examinethe key issues shaping the development of nuclear energy in Europe, particularly looking at new entrants to the nuclear power scene in emerging European countries.
hese 7 are European countries. The key factors that drove rising interest in nuclear power since 2005 has not changed. Despite the Fukushima incident, the drivers pushing nuclear power development remain the same:
- Growing energy demand
- Volatile fossil fuel prices
- Environmental pressures
- Energy security concerns
Amongst other key issues the 2nd European Nuclear Power Briefing 2013 will address :
- Ensuring a robust framework for expansion of nuclear power development
- Supporting expansion of existing or new build nuclear power programme
- Assessing regulatory issues
- Understanding climate change and the environmental impact
- Developing the grid and stakeholder involvement
- Financing options
