BEIS conference: commercialisation of small nuclear in the UK

Energy for Humanity Global Director, Kirsty Gogan, has been invited to speak at the first ever national conference dedicated to bringing together key voices from across sectors to explore the commercialisation of small nuclear in the UK. Please see “Save the Date” details from BEIS below:

The UK Nuclear Sector Deal announced in the summer signalled a key moment for Government and industry in showing shared commitment to the nuclear sector and set out a new high level framework to support the development and deployment of small reactors in the UK. The independent Expert Finance Working Group also published its report soon after.

In the Nuclear Sector Deal the Department of Business, Energy and Industry Strategy (BEIS) committed to facilitating an event aimed at bringing together nuclear and non-nuclear industry stakeholders, interested regional stakeholders, vendors, utilities, energy intensive users and the finance sector to promote further dialogue and collaboration, not just in the nuclear sector but in other sectors as well.

The event will be held at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry and open to delegates from all over the world with an evening networking event on Monday 5th November, followed by a full day conference on Tuesday 6th November, which will feature live demonstrations and key notes addresses on all aspects of commercialising small nuclear in the UK. For those of you who have not been before, the MTC is part of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult network and showcases the latest in advanced manufacturing and construction techniques.

The conference will give delegates the opportunity to view these techniques in action as well as hear from various speakers on elements from the Nuclear Sector Deal and see how it is pushing the industry forward. There will also be the opportunity for delegates to organise meetings and network with parties of interest.

For now, we ask that you save these dates and further information about how to register for the dinner, the conference and opportunities to exhibit at and sponsor the event will be available shortly.

Tickets for the conference on 6th November will be free of charge, with a small cost to attend the optional networking dinner.
