JSGS Public Lecture ~ Nuclear: the other clean energy that needs to be part of the climate change conversation

University of Regina University of Saskatchewan Video Conference

Presented by Dr. Neil Alexander, Executive Director, Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation

The COP 21 climate summit was almost entirely lit by electricity produced in nuclear power plants. It was almost entirely emissions free and these facts were almost entirely ignored by conference delegates. Under the Paris Agreement, nations have committed to setting – and keeping – ambitious targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions while also ensuring economic development and opportunity for the developing world. While it largely went unnoticed, nuclear energy was touted by climatologists and thought leaders as part of the necessary solution to this sustainability dilemma. As Canada embarks on its own path to a low-carbon economy, what is the potential role for nuclear energy domestically and how can Canada contribute to nuclear leadership and innovation internationally?
