W27 Nuclear 2030—Modern Plant Sustainability

Nuclear industry and research organizations are pursuing several initiatives for improving the sustainability of the existing fleet of plants. These initiatives include new technologies such as accident tolerant fuel, digital systems, load following operations and large-scale hydrogen production. Guests will provide perspectives on the future state of the operating fleet and discuss potential regulatory policy implications, as well as any technical and workforce challenges in achieving sustainable safe and reliable operations into the future.
