Advance Agenda Topics

Why Investors are Looking More and More at Advanced Nuclear Energy:

What are the current trends that are making investments in advanced nuclear energy so appealing?

 

The Essential Role of Nuclear Energy in Reaching Net Zero:

Conversation with forecasters showing the need for nuclear in different markets to meet the demand curve and other new environmental regulations and initiatives (e.g. EU taxonomy laws, COP27, ESG mandates, and net-zero initiatives). The importance of nuclear energy in producing hydrogen.

 

Setting the Geopolitical Framework:

Providing a high-level perspective on the global landscape of geopolitical alliances and partnerships.

 

Opportunities in Global Financial Markets:

A strategic (foundational) overview of how global financial markets are viewing investments in nuclear energy. Why investments in nuclear energy need to be viewed differently. The financial business case for investing in nuclear deployment. The impact of global and regional ESG mandates and net-zero initiatives on the business case for nuclear.

 

Panel Discussion: Perspectives on Private Financing:

The future for large-scale deployment of new reactors will depend on the availability of private financing and the willingness of the financial community to support these investments. Leaders in the private sector energy financing community will share their thoughts on the financing of nuclear projects, explain why the advanced nuclear industry is on the right track, and what the industry is doing to make financing these projects attractive.

 

Regional Market Opportunities:

A global update on today's most active regions and countries for nuclear investment. The emergence of “new nuclear” countries. Market-specific tactics and financial tools. The impact of regional regulations and initiatives.

 

U.S. Government Support and Resources:

Discussion on why the U.S. government is spending billions to support and stimulate investment in advanced civil nuclear deployment: U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Energy (Loan Program Office), the EXIM Bank of the U.S., and the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation (DFC). The importance of other non-U.S. institutions. 

 

Implications of Advanced Nuclear Licensing Modernization: 

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and Congress have actively worked to update the licensing process to be better suited to review the current technology of Advanced Nuclear Reactors. Learn what actions both the NRC and Congress are undertaking to make investments in advanced nuclear energy more appealing to investors and how current companies are successfully navigating the NRC licensing process.

 

Industry Perspective: Lessons Learned & Actions Needed:

Panel discussions by industry leaders on what actions are needed to assure capital for deployment. What are the most attractive sources of capital?

 

Perspectives from Investors in Nuclear Energy:

The voices of the end-user. Real-world experiences and lessons learned by leading utilities, large industrial investors/customers, and major corporate players.
