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

Dear Joss

I am writing to invite you to the above seminar. Please note there is a charge for most delegates, although no one is excluded on the basis of ability to pay (see below).


This seminar will assess the continuing debate over the position of nuclear power in the UK 's future energy mix.

Planned sessions focus on the economic, environmental and political challenges that UK policy makers, and energy and utility companies, face in the mobilisation of a sustainable nuclear power strategy for the 21st century.

Including a keynote presentation from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and EDF, planned sessions focus on:

· The UK nuclear power context;

· Continuing concerns: safety, sustainability and waste disposal;

· The challenges for nuclear new build: investment and the planning system; and

· Industry strategy and progress for 21st century nuclear power;

The draft agenda is copied below my signature, and a regularly updated version is available to view online here. The seminar is organised on the basis of strict impartiality by the Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum.

Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum seminars present an opportunity to engage with key policymakers and other interested parties, and are CPD certified. Typically attendees at our seminars are a senior and informed group numbering around 140, including Members of both Houses of Parliament, senior officials from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and other relevant Departments, as well as energy and environment professionals, representatives of energy organisations, academics, local government, interested and affected citizens’ and interest groups, and representatives of the trade and national press.

Output and About Us

A key output of the seminar will be a transcript of the proceedings, sent out within a week of the event to Ministers and officials at the Department of Energy and Climate Change and other departments affected by the issues, Parliamentarians with a special interest in these areas, and policy makers in other institutions, departments and agencies. It will also be made available more widely. It will include transcripts of all speeches and questions and answers sessions from the day, along with access to PowerPoint presentations, speaker biographies, attendee list, an agenda and sponsor information. It is made available subject to strict restrictions on public use, similar to those for Select Committee Uncorrected Evidence, and is intended to provide timely information for interested parties who are unable to attend on the day.

All delegates will receive free PDF copies and are invited to contribute to the content.

The Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum is strictly impartial and cross-party, and draws on the considerable support it receives from within Parliament and Government, and amongst the wider stakeholder community. The Forum has no policy agenda of its own. Forum events are frequently the platform for major policy statements from senior Ministers, regulators and other officials, opposition speakers and senior opinion formers in industry and interest groups. Events regularly receive prominent coverage in the national and trade press.
