Delivering the Nuclear Promise at #NEA16

The American nuclear energy industry is heading to Miami this week for the 2016 Nuclear Energy Assembly (agenda). The theme of the meeting is Delivering the Nuclear Promise, which is also the industry-wide effort championed by NEI that aims to advance safety, reliability and economic performance at U.S. nuclear power plants.

We'll be live streaming two of the most exciting panels on May 24 on YouTube. First, at 11:00 a.m. EDT, we'll have a panel on global climate issues that will feature Larry Makovich of IHS CERA, Jason Grumet of the Bipartisan Policy Center, Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, the former Secretary of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Doug Vine of C2ES. And then at 1:30 P.M. EDT we'll follow that up with a closer look at new reactor development. That panel will be chaired by NEI Chief Operating Officer Maria Korsnick and feature Jacob DeWitte of Oklo, John Hopkins of NuScale Power, Steve Kuczynski of Southern Company, Lee McIntire of TerraPower and Cynthia Pezze of Westinghouse.

If you can't make it to Miami, you can follow along on Twitter. As in previous years, we'll be tweeting highlights from the event on our feed, this year using the hashtag #NEA16. Along with the highlights of what's going on at the podium (including the winners of coveted industry awards), we'll also be sharing images and video interviews. Coming off last week's DOE Summit, it's sure to be an exciting week.
