T9 Reimagining Nuclear’s Role in Energy and the Electric Grid

The role of nuclear is reimagined in a carbon free future, with nuclear providing both electricity to the grid and process heat energy for applications such as hydrogen production, fuels, fertilizers, steel, plastics, chemicals, desalination, space heating, and others. This session features cross-sector perspectives and examples from experts and industry leaders on how the safe and secure use of existing and new nuclear technology can address near-term and future needs for a resilient and reliable electricity grid and heat energy source.
