Start up & Innovation Showcase

(Networking coffee 15:45-16:30)

Today’s energy industry can at times suffer from a lack of engagement with new and innovative ideas and technologies from start- up organisations. Yet, as the energy transition continues to accelerate at pace, it is vital to not only identify these latest technologies, but to ensure that these are deservedly championed and embraced. This session provides a stage for these bright and innovative organisations to showcase their strategies, ideas and technologies to senior peers, in order to provide the industry with the spark required to take the energy transition to the next level.

Session 12 – The Nuclear Energy Argument: Is Nuclear A Solution To The Energy Crisis & Is There A Shift In Public Opinion?

  • Will the anticipated nuclear power renaissance which was derailed by the Fukushima disaster now be accelerated due to current global conflicts?
  • How have politics in the US and EU, among other democracies, shaped whether nuclear power is considered part of the climate crisis solution and how have China accomplished recent nuclear builds without the hyperinflation experienced by Wester manufacturers?
  • Will the nuclear industry finally develop acceptable solutions to long term waste disposal to become a generally more favourable option?
