Nuclear Beyond Power: Hydrogen, Heat, and Desalination

Fifth annual Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum

January 19-22, 2021


The Atlantic Council Global Energy Forum is the premiere international gathering of government, industry, and thought leaders to set the energy agenda for the year.


Non-grid nuclear applications hold key to decarbonisation: Using nuclear plants to generate heat as well as electricity for non-grid industrial applications could be central to deep decarbonisation efforts beyond being a source of zero-carbon electricity. Our panel looked at how hydrogen and nuclear energy can contribute to carbon abatement efforts in areas that have so far been hard to decarbonise.
