2009 MIT Energy Conference Workshop: Nuclear Power: New Markets and New Applications

Nuclear Power: New Markets and New Applications A Workshop on the Opportunities for Different Size Reactors in the Global Nuclear Enterprise Date and Time: Friday March 6, 2009, 1:00 - 5:00 PM The MIT Energy Conference 2009 “Nuclear Power: New Markets and New Applications” workshop featured a panel of experts spanning academia, industry and government, to discuss the challenges facing the commercial deployment of any innovative, sub-gigawatt reactor design concept. Several small-to-medium design concepts have been proposed as an economic nuclear system that can meet society’s 21st century energy needs in the U.S. and abroad. Developing countries in particular may be better served by smaller systems for electricity production and other uses such as mining and water desalination. Panelists discussed various factors affecting commercial, public and political acceptance of development and deployment. Participants: - Workshop Host, Andrew Orrell, Director Nuclear Energy Programs, Sandia National Laboratories - Dr. Thomas L. Sanders, Vice President/President-Elect of the American Nuclear Society - Ambassador Dennis Hays, Vice President, Thorium Power, Ltd. - Steven A.
