The Nuclear Industry’s Leading SMR and Advanced Reactor Forum
The 7th Annual International SMR and Advanced Reactor Summit (30-31, Atlanta) is the world’s largest platform to overcome the design, licensing, financing and commercialization hurdles facing the industries.
With presentations from 40+ leading industry experts, over 300 of your peers and a huge exhibition hall full of the very latest in SMR and advanced reactor technology, the event is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Here’s what you can expect from the event in 2017:
Assess the viability of financing SMRs and Advanced Reactors so you can best prepare to mitigate the financial risk tied to nuclear new builds.
Hear from the leading global designers on their SMR and Advanced Reactor projects allowing you to consider which reactor best suits your commercial strategy.
Realize the significant cost reduction potential for the construction, operation and maintenance of SMRs and Advanced Reactors which will be essential to remain cost-competitive in the energy market.
Get to grips with the many potential applications of SMRs and Advanced Reactors, offering alternative revenue streams besides electricity generation and allowing operators to combat fluctuating market prices.
Take a look at just some of the confirmed attendees for the event:
Hear from the attendees as to why they are looking forward to SMR 2017:
“A strong focus on non-emitting, reliable, and resilient energy generation is a necessity in planning future energy systems around the world. The SMR Summit provides an excellent venue for interactions among international vendors, utilities, and decision makers that can make the dream of a low-carbon world a future reality. I am excited to be a part of that discussion!” – Shannon Bragg-Sitton, Ph.D., Lead, Nuclear-Renewable Hybrid Energy Systems at Idaho National Laboratory.
“I'm greatly looking forward to understanding the opportunities ahead for SMR development at the conference, specifically where U.S. goods and services are featured.” – Michael Whalen, VP Structured Finance Division at the Export-Import Bank of the United States.
“Indirect costs such as engineering, site preparation, installation and interest during construction dominate the capital cost of new nuclear builds. This workshop promises to explore how SMRs could reduce such costs by changing the deployment paradigm for nuclear power plants.” – Jacopo Buongiorno, TEPCO Professor and Associate Department Head, Nuclear Science and Engineering, Director, Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems (CANES) at MIT.
