The nuclear revival continues, fueled by loan guarantees from the Obama administration and the increasing demand for cleaner energy sources. The first round of nuclear new build construction is on track to add 7 additional reactors to the U.S.’s existing fleet of 104. And despite the obstacles surrounding the planning, construction and development, nuclear new build continues to advance.

Building on the success of the two previous iterations, this year’s Nuclear Power Congress will bring you up to speed on the latest developments within the industry. Key areas to be discussed include:

• Forecasting future demand for nuclear power in the U.S. and globally, as analyzed by the World Nuclear

Association, the Canadian Nuclear Association, CERA and the Georgia Public Services Commission.

• Lessons learned and best practices within new nuclear reactor licensing from Jack Bailey of Tennessee

Valley Authority and Chuck Pierce of Southern Company, in addition to the regulatory perspective

from Luis Reyes of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

• The effects of working with EPC contractors and labor sources from Chuck Whitney of Oglethorpe

Power Corporation.

• New build project management strategies and success stories shared by Florida Power and Light Company and

Southern Company.

• The impact of next generation reactor designs on capital costs, discussed by the U.S. Department

of Energy and NuScale Power.

• Real-life case studies of ongoing projects by Bruce Power on their Canadian refurbishment and new build activities, as well as plant uprate analysis from Exelon Corporation.
