CEM-12: Flexible Nuclear Campaign for Nuclear-Renewables Integration


The NICE Future initiative hosted a side event at CEM-12 about the Flexible Nuclear Campaign for Nuclear-Renewables Integration (FNC) This event is available on the on-demand section throughout the duration of the CEM, from 31 May to 06 June, 2021.

This event's discussion focuses on nuclear technology’s system flexibility benefits, presenting new applications that target hard-to-decarbonize sectors and enable re-use of existing infrastructure without emissions. This will include the opportunity to cost-competitively repower coal fleets to make them cleaner and more flexible than today, while expanding clean energy jobs. This event seeks to raise the profile of the FNC and shine a light on the transformative potential for nuclear energy to accelerate decarbonization and an equitable energy transition.
