Decarbonisation of the world’s energy sector is a challenging task that many governments around the world are working on. As a stable and low-carbon source, nuclear energy can play a significant role in contributing to climate change mitigation efforts as well as in addressing the energy supply issues.

This webinar will discuss the role of nuclear energy in the context of reaching the carbon neutrality, the synergies between nuclear energy and renewables, as well as the multipurpose application of nuclear energy.

Organised by the IFNEC Nuclear Supplier and Customer Countries Engagement Group (NSCCEG), this virtual event will take place on 15 September 2022.
