8th Nuclear Energy Conclave

The next - 9th Nuclear Energy Conclave will be held on Friday, 27th October 2017 at Hotel Le-Meridien, New Delhi. In line with present Govt's emphasis on Power for All, the theme of the Conclave this year is "NUCLEAR POWER: GROWTH PROSPECTS". In addition to deliberating on the theme, the Conclave would also focus on current issues like Strategy for Growth of Nuclear Power, approach to making India a global manufacturing hub, challenges associated with diverse technologies coming to India for rapid growth of Nuclear Power and industry perspective and preparedness to meet the capacity addition challenges. Industry leaders from India and Abroad are being invited to deliberate and share their views and experience on these issues.

Rosatom (Russian State Nuclear Power Corp.), Russia has agreed to share their views and experience on "Generation III+ Light Water Reactors", and be the Principal Sponsor for the event.

Objective

The world is at the cusp of energy transition moving away from fossil fuels to sustainable and clean sources of energy to address the climate change concerns. India is no exception. India has committed 40 per cent of installed electric power capacity from non-fossil sources by 2030 as part of its INDC at COP21.

Nuclear Energy is the only non-fossil source which can meet both base load, stable 24x7 energy demand and sustainability criteria. With well developed technology and capebilities, India is uniquely placed to build significant nuclear power capebilities in the country. The Nuclear Energy Programme needs to be implemented on large scale to meet carbon reduction goal specially as the renewables offers only a partial solution.

Therefore, the theme of 9th Nuclear Energy Conclave on Growth Prospects of Nuclear Power is very timely and needs to be given a fillip.
