Kirsty Gogan and Eric Ingersoll were pleased to present at the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM) where our partner organization, TerraPraxis, hosted a discussion about the Flexible Nuclear Campaign (FNC) for Nuclear-Renewables Integration.
The Nuclear Innovation: Clean Energy Future (NICE Future) initiative is in year 2 of its FNC for Nuclear-Renewables Integration. The discussion will focus on nuclear technology’s system flexibility benefits, presenting new applications that target hard-to-decarbonize sectors and enable re-use of existing infrastructure without emissions.
This will include the opportunity to cost-competitively repower coal fleets to make them cleaner and more flexible than today, while expanding clean energy jobs. This event seeks to raise the profile of the FNC and shine a light on the transformative potential for nuclear energy to accelerate decarbonization and an equitable energy transition.
