Clean Air and Nuclear Power: How Much Do the New Clean Air Regulations Need Nuclear Power Plants?

Instructor: Tamar J. Cerafici
Product ID: 501106

Regulations change the way we do business all the time, especially when they involve climate change! For the last 50 years, nuclear energy has been depicted as a carbon free, clean alternative to fossil fuel-fired plants. More recently, wind farms and solar panel fields dominated the landscape. But what are the environmental impacts of these alternative sources? How do the risks of nuclear power play out in the public forum? Why do nuclear projects still encounter such forceful opposition? This program will review the issues that swirl around alternative energy sources as states attempt to comply with the Clean Power Program.

Objectives of the Presentation
Overview of Clean Power Plan
Overview of nuclear energy policy in the United States
Organization of nuclear regulatory duties
How nuclear energy is regulated
Existing nuclear facilities & their murky future
Role of nuclear energy in the CPP
Role of other non-carbon fuel sources, and the interplay between base load power and renewable energy
State GHG emission planning and the role of nuclear energy in the calculation
Political and policy issues going forward

Why Should you Attend
The Clean Power Plan will affect the way we manage energy and develop power projects for the next 15 years; nuclear energy is still a key part of many states’ compliance strategies. This session will reveal important ways that states and private businesses can adjust to the new regulations, answering questions like:
What are the goals and regulations for alternative and carbon free fuel sources?
What sources are considered under the Clean Power Plan?
What effect will the Clean Power Plan have on the market for these sources?
What are the regulations that govern these alternative sources – especially nuclear power?
Will this emphasis on non-carbon emissions be beneficial to my business?
