Wednesday, June 12, 8:00-10:00 am

The continued operation of nuclear power plants in the United States is being challenged by economics and other issues such as finding a solution to used fuel and where to store it. Industry experts are working hard to gain efficiencies and make nuclear competitive against all sources of energy.

Find out what’s happening in the industry today and what to expect over the next decade.
