8th Nuclear Energy Conclave

The next 8th Nuclear Energy Conclave will be held on Friday, 30th September 2016 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi. In line with present Govt’s emphasis on Energy and INDC’s Commitments, the Theme of the Conference this year is “Meeting the Non-Fossil Energy Targets through Nuclear Power”. The Conclave will focus on advanced technologies for safer and cleaner fossil energy leveraging domestic engineering/manufacturing/construction capabilities, advancement of technology within the country, Safety and Regulation. It is intended to discuss Advanced Technologies for safer & cleaner Non-Fossil Energy.

It is also planned to organize Round Table Debate - to give opportunity to Indian venders to discuss issues in expanding supply chain capabilities for both PHWRs and LWRs. The discussions will cover nuclear capacity addition programmes, technology transfer issues, policies to engage existing capacities and bringing in new players.


India, under COP21, has submitted its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), pledging to reduce emission intensity of its GDP by 33-35 per cent by 2030 from 2005 levels and aims to achieve about 40 per cent cumulative electric power installed capacity from Non-fossil fuel based energy resources in the same time frame. It reflects the beginning of India’s energy transformation from carbon intensive sector to non-fossil areas where Nuclear energy can play a major role.

The theme of 8th Nuclear Conclave is intended to focus on contributions by Nuclear energy towards the country’s vision of clean energy future.
