Meeting the energy challenge: nuclear's role in a sustainable and secure low-carbon future
Energy demand has been growing faster than clean energy production, leading to a rise in energy-related GHGs. Price rises triggered by fossil fuel supplies concerns are causing hardship. The event explores how nuclear energy can contribute to a more affordable, secure and sustainable energy future.

Speakers: Speakers will be drawn from industry and other stakeholder groups
