The Future of Nuclear Energy Roundtable
The Aspen Future of Nuclear Energy Roundtable (formerly “Forum”) brings together thought leaders to discuss the future of nuclear energy in the nation’s energy portfolio. The U.S. has long been a leader in the nuclear industry, setting global standards for safety and reliability while providing carbon-free, around-the-clock electricity. Presently, the industry faces an uncertain future stemming from aging fleets, competition from cheap natural gas and flat electricity demand, among other factors. This forum provides a unique venue for innovators, energy providers, and policy makers to analyze in-depth the challenges and opportunities facing nuclear energy and develop new ideas to maximize its potential and effectiveness going forward.
