TH19 The Future is Now: Case Studies on Nuclear's Role in Meeting Energy and Electricity Demands

Nuclear has long been an important part of the U.S. and international power generation mix and will likely play a critical role in a carbon-free energy future. The future is happening now with numerous recent examples demonstrating the role of nuclear for increasing resilience on a low carbon electricity grid and to fill diverse industrial energy demands. This session features industry, international, government and research perspectives on recent decisions and topics such as nuclear plant restart decisions, the use of nuclear for industrial power and process heat, the use of nuclear power to advance hydrogen production, and international nuclear development.
