NASEM: Understanding the Societal Challenges Facing Nuclear Power

Nuclear energy could play an important role in moving towards net-zero emissions, but there are many economic, regulatory, and societal factors that determine whether expanding nuclear power is a feasible solution. The National Academies invite you to join us for a virtual workshop exploring societal challenges facing nuclear energy on September 1-3, 2021 from 11:30am-3:30pm ET.

During the workshop, invited speakers will discuss public engagement with the nuclear industry and other related industries, social science perspectives on issues facing nuclear power, and technical factors related to safety and nuclear waste. The workshop will explore how analysts, policy makers, and the nuclear industry can learn from past experiences and from the latest in decision science.
