Join us for our annual nuclear regulatory update. The nuclear energy industry faces substantial pressures that have increased the cost of nuclear power generation and reduced the costs of competing sources of generation.

Some plants are being permanently shut down, the growth of new plants in the United States has slowed, and a near-term permanent repository for spent nuclear fuel has remained elusive. But state incentives are materializing to prevent plant shutdowns, the NRC is laying the framework for advanced reactors, and the new US Congress may restart the Yucca Mountain project. 

What are the regulatory implications for 2017? Join us for a one-hour webinar about the changing nuclear regulatory environment.

Topics will include:

  • Evolution of NRC Leadership and Organization
  • New Nuclear Power Plants and Advanced Reactors 
  • Spent Fuel Storage and Disposal
  • Decommissioning
  • Whistleblower Developments
