Background information

Egypt Time, GMT +2: 2:00 PM-3:30 PM

How nuclear energy can help address the two major crises – energy and climate – the world is currently facing? Nuclear energy can contribute to a diverse and domestically based energy mix. Moreover, nuclear energy can be a source of low emissions electricity that complements renewables in the transition to electricity systems with net zero emissions. 

What are the latest results of R&D on hybrid systems and multiuse applications of nuclear power in low-carbon energy systems with a high proportion of renewable energy? How to create the conditions for the large-scale development of clean hydrogen production? And for which uses? What are the obstacles and levers encountered by the players in the sector? These are some questions that this event will explore. 

This event will discuss what are the opportunities and challenges in low carbon energy production and potential solutions for policy, regulatory and market changes considering the key role of the nuclear energy and hydrogen.
