Energiforsk annual nuclear Conference 2016 January 19-20
The Energiforsk Nuclear Research Program and North European Power Perspectives welcome you to a seminar on the role of nuclear power in the Nordic energy system.
The electricity producers are facing many challenges given the current situation with low energy prices and market measures aimed at restructuring the energy system towards more renewables and small local energy production. These challenges are particularly pronounced for producers of nuclear energy, where safety related investment demands and regulations also append additional production costs. Due to the difficult financial situation, owners of Swedish nuclear power plants have decided on early decommissioning of four Swedish plants. This will affect especially the power balance. The Finnish situation is also challenging, but despite of this nuclear power plants are under construction. Internationally, many countries are investing in construction of nuclear power to obtain low carbon electricity.
The seminar will provide an overview of the role of nuclear power in the Nordic electricity system, today and tomorrow. Furthermore, presentations on the impact of early decommissioning on industry, environment, health and competence supply will be given. Welcome! Monika Adsten and Stefan Montin, Energiforsk
