Hitachi- from the country that brought the world Fukushima
We feel very sad for the people of Japan who want to end nuclear energy whilst a potential new government and big business are desperate for it

No Fukushima at Oldbury

No to Fukushima at Shepperdine!

Europe’s nuclear industry —

From vision to implementation

Fears surrounding security of supply, fossil fuel price volatility and increasingly tighter climate change goals at the international level are fuelling the resurgence in nuclear power globally. In Europe, it is widely predicted that demand will outstrip supply long-term if the regions’ ageing infrastructure remains neglected. The ability to create a stable and significant clean baseload has firmly placed nuclear power back on the table for policy makers and utilities alike.

If the industry is to fulfil its potential and seize a larger share of the European energy mix — many challenges need to be addressed. The industry’s capacity to build and develop a competitive supply chain infrastructure and workforce as well as achieving financial value and public support are paramount to its momentum. Doubts surrounding policy direction and carbon price continue to affect long term planning for the industry.

Building on the success of previous years, Platts 5th Annual European Nuclear Power: Prices, Policy and Projects conference will continue to assemble and showcase those organisations which are leading Europe’s nuclear revival and those supporting it. Leading operators, project developers, policy makers, observers and financiers will be brought together to debate the challenges faced from policy to finance, discuss and review nuclear projects in their various stages and look to provide attendees with a practical overview of the industry now and moving forward.

Platts 5th Annual European Nuclear Power: Prices, Policy and Projects will continue to:

over 200 leading industry professionals from 117 different companies and 23 countries

25+ industry leading speakers from Europe’s leading utilities, project developers, technology providers, policy makers, regulators, financiers, NGO’s and observers
