Climate Change & Nuclear Energy in the 21st Century

Nov 1, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Climate change and world energy needs lead us to look at nuclear power as a major non-carbon energy producer for a better future.

Hear of the latest in advanced nuclear technology from Oregon start-up NuScale LLC, and local Seattle start-up TerraPower. What would this mean for existing nuclear power plants? Would they provide our growing electricity needs? And what solutions has advanced nuclear provided for non-proliferation and waste?

Hear from distinguished guests:

Dr. James Conca, Geoscienctist and Forbes Energy Writer
Lenka Kollar, Director of Business Strategy for NuScale
Mark Schanfein, Senior Nonproliferation Advisor at PNNL
Dr. Nick Touran, Reactor Physicist at TerraPower
