Nuclear energy remains central to the UK energy agenda yet despite the current nuclear renaissance it is clear that a more immediate challenge and related opportunities are arising out of decommissioning and legacy waste management. The past failure to address decommissioning and nuclear waste disposal has also left the UK with vast clean-up liability and work with historic contamination and waste is set to last many decades.
Join your peers in July and gain an essential insight into the regulatory framework and practical solutions to the legal challenges that will shape the future of UK nuclear legacy management.
Key speakers confirmed include:
Dr Tim Stone, Expert Chair, Office for Nuclear Development for Energy & Climate Change and Senior Advisor to the Chief Secretary of the Treasury on Nuclear New-Build
Roger Clayson, Interim Head of Legal, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
George Beveridge, Deputy MD, Sellafield Sites Ltd
David West, Legal Advisor, UKAEA
Dr Richard Wright, Consulting Engineer, Westinghouse
Dr Andy Hall, Deputy Chief Inspector, Health and Safety Executive
In addition to discussing how the key legal challenges can be addressed, the event will provide invaluable insight from industry experts and examples of solutions and strategic planning to maximise on opportunities.
