Nuclear Power: Way Forward

The world is passing through the challenge of a difficult energy transition - a transition to New Energy economy by moving away from fossil fuels to cleaner sources like Nuclear and Renewables. The quest for cleaner environment - free of greenhouse gases - is the main driver of this transition. The Renewables like solar, wind, biomass will play major role in future energy economy but the global scale at which energy is required would be missing. In real world, there is no credible path to bulk, base load energy needs and climate stabilization imperative that does not include substantial role for Nuclear Power. For the last nine years, this annual conclave has been deliberating the issues and challenges impacting the civil Nuclear Sector in depth and highlighting to government and other stakeholders the road map for future developments.

The 10th Nuclear Conclave

The 10th Nuclear Conclave is being organized on the theme "NUCLEAR POWER: TOWARDS A CLEAN AND BASE LOAD ENERGY". Over the years, the Nuclear Conclave organized by IEF has emerged as a content rich and one of the largest events in India on Nuclear Energy. Besides the theme, there would be a roundtable on Growth of Nuclear Power including fleet mode implementations of Nuclear Projects: non- power applications of Nuclear Energy and future prospects of Nuclear Energy. Industry leaders from India and abroad are being invited to deliberate and share their views and experiences on these issues
