Nuclear Energy Regulatory Trends for 2016

View the presentation >>

January 28, 2016

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 remains elusive. Congress, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the industry are all reacting to these trends.

What are the regulatory implications of these trends for 2016?

Join us for a one-hour webinar about the changing nuclear regulatory environment and the prospects for improvement over the coming years.

Topics will include:
  • Congressional Action
  • Evolution of NRC Leadership and Organization
  • Regulatory Factors Affecting the Economics of Operating Plants
  • New Nuclear Power Plants
  • Spent Fuel Storage and Disposal
  • Decommissioning
