There is a renewed interest in nuclear power as an emission-free energy source and as a natural hedge against the environmental costs of fossil fuels. Several European governments are reported to be re-evaluating their nuclear policy in the light of high oil prices and security of supply concerns, and many see no alternative, given the volumes of electricity required.

Investors are attracted to nuclear as a component of an energy portfolio and a reliable source of power in a climate of energy price volatility and explosive worldwide growth in energy demand. Investment opportunities in nuclear power have never been more promising — but the challenges are daunting.

The format of this summit-style event combines keynote presentations and high-level panel discussions. Topics include:

Political landscape for nucleonics — pan-European and national approaches
Meeting energy demand: The role of nuclear power in energy security
Competitive framework: Key advantages of nuclear power
Trends in financing nuclear power projects and investment criteria
Commercial overview of the European Pressurised water Reactor (EPR)
Decommissioning nuclear facilities in Europe
Foreign investment and influence on the European nuclear industry
Global opportunities for European nucleonics expertise
Target audience:
This conference is designed for executives in the European nuclear power industry including those responsible for new business development, government and regulatory affairs, finance, risk analysis, operations, strategy, decommissioning, fuel management and forecasting. Participants will include executives from the leading nuclear power producers, financiers, and representatives of European regulatory agencies and industry associations — as well as voices opposed to a nuclear resurgence.
